Does anybody know how I could make two functional, scale Welin Quadrant Davits that you could swing in and out by turning the handle or whatever it was called? What materials would i need? I've never done any model making before. Maybe there is one for purchase somewhere online?

I have always wanted to try out an see how the Welin davits looked up close and be able to swing them out, lower the lifeboats....

I want this model (including the lifeboats) to be maybe 20 cm long.

Such a shame foxploration is closed

(Watch between 4:40 and 4:44 for animation of single davit swinging out.)


This link shows a electronic patent for the Welin Davit:

Patent US872776 - Davit.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Does any on know what I could make the Davit arm out of. I already know how I will make the base, but not the teeth and Davit arms.

I'm not making this Davit model because I don't know how to make it.
