Tiny,

You have captured the true spirit of the Tug Forum. Learn and share with each other. And--some really nice models get built in the mean time. Well done.

On Saturday (25th August 2012) I spent the day with the "Friends of TID164" who showed me around their TID tug and I would like to thank them for their hospitality and guided tour.  It was a great opportunity to meet the people who keep this little vessel going and I thoroughly enjoyed it.   I was so impressed with their efforts I presented them with a copy of my book on the build of my model.  They loved the book and it now sits in the mess for all to read.  Keep up the good work and I hope to see her in full steam very soon.

A few weeks ago I decided to build a Thames Lighter to accompany my TID 164.  The design was quite simple and made mainly from balsa wood with brass towing fittings.  Here are some photographs of the two together.

Tiny I am currently building a TID (Build log on RC Groups). Iím working from a set of plans from Marine Modeler and have a quick question. The plans, in 1/24 scale call for a 7 inch stack, making it around 14 feet tall. The vintage pictures of TIDs Iíve seen look like the stack is much taller. Also Iíve noticed other models of TIDs appear to have a shorten stack. Your excellent model looks to be correct. Do you have the actual measurement for the stack? Or could you let me know what height you made your stack? Iím at the point in my build where I need to go ahead and make this decision. Any help you can lend would be greatly appreciated.

Rmay,

Only just seen your post and the stack on my model is 230mm (9 inches) high.

I believe the early numbers of TID had a short funnel but the engine performance was improved with a taller funnel (stack) on the later numbers.

Last weekend while sailing my TID164 I managed to shoot some film and put together a short video of it towing the Thames Lighter I built.

Regards
