Frank,

Your tug looks like it could actually tug and has been doing so for a while. Nice rusty bits on metal parts etc.

Mike

Looks good, Frank. The finish and detail are excellent, right down to the missing bolt on the tow bit!

Thanks Mike.

Dave no problem, itís taken me 3 months to get this far along.

Thanks Carl.

Bill the running lights will come on in the next few days. I have to do the mast and interior lights also.

Pete there is a website out there for handmade rope fenders but Iím going to try to weave a set first.

Thanks Ed, Bob and Jerry.

Frank thereíll be several sailors on board including a hard hat diver.

Mike and Jeff thanks, the bolt fell out and I couldnít find it so I said ďlooks good just the way it isĒ.

Ted, the lights will be on soon and you can forward the certification papers.

Frank, your little tug is looking very nice indeed.
I think someone here should start a thread on push pins, and their usefulness in modeling projects.

Greg I nominate you for the job of push pin cliniation.

Frank we were planning to include a Seaplane in the dio. it will probably be tied alongside the floating dock being repaired.

Itís a Revell 1:32 scale model way out of production. All the parts seem to be there including some aftermarket ones.

Many thanks to Frank the Cowboybilly for sending me the magazine with the U-Boat article in it.


Iím trying to finish this little tug boat so I can concentrate on my boxcabs full time. Lately Iíve been jumping from one to the other whichever way I feel that day. I finished the lights, ugh Iíll never make those again. There are 4 parts to each light. Since they are handmade they look a little rough and not that perfect. I canít tell you how many I made just to get 5 complete and finished lights. But they are mounted and wired and the masts have been glued in.

With the main mast finished I was able to finish the rigging. I ran 3 strands of brown thread through the dead eyes. The stack behind the main stack is for the generator. I mounted the rear lights to it. it was supposed to go in front of the main stack but I relocated the mast there.

Next will be the anchor winch, finish the wiring, add a few more little details and weathering.

The tug is looking good. Are you the lucky devil who gets to put together the Revell seaplane?

A styrene kit I assume? HeHe.
