Manchester Ship Canal Tug
« on: September 14, 2011, 14:06:21 »
Thought you might be interested to see this model tug seen at Shepton Mallet Drifters Regatta recently.  Model is scratch built, using the ship yard drawings to assist with construction.

Regards,

Kevin

MSC Victory , Nice build..

Have a close look at my Avatar..  My F.I.L was the Skipper on The MSC Volant for quite a number of years and was able to have a couple of trips.
