Re pulp roll size,
When I worked in a pulp mill, chemical pulp was being produced.

If I recall as it was a long time ago!
The rolls were 36 Inch's in Diameter and 30 Inch's wide.
They were either wrapped with brown paper or had a wire strap through the center and tightened on the outside.

Your ship is coming along, in spite of the weather.

Hi Ken, many thanks

Yeah the second section be a lot quicker to build, as the next two the same,
I am thinking of rebuilding the bow again want to fix up the mistakes that show.

I had a toast to the the second keel being glued in place,
as you will see very nice drink indeed.





You can buy a larger bottle that you put in what you like,
that bottle was quite dear $8 hate to think was a a half dozen cost will check that out.

Yeah stinker of a day today peaked 39 degrees,
even after tea after fixing a hose reel trolley and cutting some timber for the bridge,
I was sweating even hosing the grass, finish the hosing tomorrow.

Tomorrow even hotter in much movement outside.

What it like in Canada where you live Ken, starting to warm up.

Sadly no work on Camdale till it gets cooler, be in March.

Hi Tony  :wave:


Not as cold here, to get a snow-flake generator like Kens !  ;)

But we did get 4" of snow the other day.  :P


Peanuts !  :y:

Round Kens way, they'd just scoop that up & add it to their Canadian Club !  :cool:



'Tor Corona' is lookin' good !  :thumb:

The trailers you put inside, really give it a sense of scale ... BIG !  :shocked:


Damn HOT :boogie: weather you're getting there at the moment !!  :s: :s: :s: :s: :s:

Like you say, 'Camdale' is looking forward to a cooler spell.



:)



Si.

Hi Si and Ken  :wave:

Yeah being stricken hot here that is for sure,
and three days of even higher temps, 38 degrees ouch.

Cool change coming next weekend.

I have being busy working on Corona Sea.
Have cut out the first bulkhead and glues it to the section section.
I did a test to see how both joined together.
I will need a flat surface to work on when gluing the two sections together.

Wont actually doing that with the bow section,
not a 100 percent happy with the building of the bow section. 





Can see why I had so much trouble in marking the yellow trailer lanes.
With building the full bulkhead in one whole piece and gluing the main deck in last be a lot easier.










Can see why I will need a flat surface, one of the station modules be perfect.
Will have join two 6 foot modules together, need over 7 feet.

Continue on with the second construction build at least it be a lot easier to build,
the only difference is there be the start of the ramp access from the upper deck.

I have started work on the Cam river Double deck bridge,
cutting out brackets for the road deck to sit on bottom arch frame.
Pics to follow tomorrow,
am only doing some work after tea where it is cooler, get a lot down in a few hours.

All is working out out well, bridge be a stunning site when built,
hope it works and holds up in the middle of the main span.

Ken you be looking forward to summer and me to winter.
Si that Canadian Club is a nice drink indeed.
Normally don't whisky after that bottle be buying more.
May be the Canadian Club with out the mix and mix my own.
