Flying Tempest Empire Ivy
« on: July 28, 2019, 11:11:26 »
Hello all

Has anyone built a model of this particular tug? I used the search feature here and was surprised to not to find anything. If any has a build, has photos or drawings to share I would be glad to see such.

Hello John B

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply and add a few photographs. Very helpful. So yours is finished as Empire Ivy. When you say that you didn't like the bridge did you mean as per kit or the real vessel?

Will go and take now a closer look at the photos.

Thanks

Toby

Hi Toby as the kit and the real one,i did my bridge  more like  the Sun 16.and 17.
I think its called artistic licence the real one looked to boxy.
