diesel tug craig
« on: September 22, 2011, 19:33:43 »
thanx to redlined and footski.....i started building the craig.
the design and shape of the hull is just beautiful.
this will be a slow build,footski glassed and smoothed his version of the craig.
ill try to leave the planks uneven and showing for a nice scale look.

bulkheads are birch,planking is spanish ceder.

finished picture isnt mine!
