Coming to the stage very soon where everything needs to be removed [not a thing is attached yet] and the decks rubbed down and final coats applied. Latest pics show port side stanchion holes drilled pre clean down, towing deck gussets made in home made jig and roughly placed in position. Anchor winch made and positioned along with breakwater and front rope grid. Rope reels also made, tho no ropes on them yet. That upper deck aft of the funnel seemed like an aircraft carrier flight deck at one time and now I am moving stuff minutely to fit it all in. Fire monitors made from brazeing rod, part of auto inline fuse, ball point pen barrel, plasticard and a press stud donated by 'er indoors'. Rope reels dowel, fibre washers and plasticard. If garage gets too cold later in autumn then fine detailing to individual parts can be carried out on herselfs craft worktop. Starboard side davits to assemble, firemain outlets ditto, drill starboard side stanchion holes and clean down I think.

Very nicely build thamestug.
One question do you also change the plastic propeller for one of brass.
That looks much better.
