Scratch built Miki Tug

These pictures of a great looking model, posted on Kim's behalf :) :)


Hi folks, I had a request to post more photos of Al Mason's beautiful scratch built tug. So I thought I would forward them to my group list.

The FF was sitting quietly as ever in Sooke Harbour yesterday when I drove by! Just doesn't look as good as it did earlier.

A wonderful job on the model of a great subject. What a history those Miki's have. Thanks for posting. If there are more pics it would be much appreciated if you posted them as well. Compliments to the builder.

garboard plank is 6", next 5", then down to 3 1/2" untill you arrive at the guard, then top two planks are 4 1/2" by 8",  ribs are doubled sawn frames total of 8" by 16"  with about  8" between,  model has scale planks ;oh, then the hull has a layer of 1" gumwood from the guard down to about 4' below the water line. model has mahougany in lew of gumwood. note, gumwood is layed parallel to the water line,so it becomes a real job if the seams need caulking. al
