exwafoo Posted February 9, 2016 Report Share Posted February 9, 2016 Many years ago, in a Boy's Own Annual (now showing my age) there was a plan to build a model tugboat. Portholes (or scuttles as they were/are referred to in the RN) were modeled by pushing a light blue plastic knitting needle up a suitable sized brass tube, sawing and sanding slices and then gluing on. For some reason this method has stuck in a corner of my memory. A bit big for what we do, however I have used pieces of small diameter, small bore brass tube, polished at one end, then filled with white plasticene sunk into the, usually, a deck house. Works quite well. Al Chasseur 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
