HI George

Were did you get the buff colour on your superstructure? Later version of my Amsterdam has the engine cowling area in that colour

The Butegarth hull offered for a short while by Bosun Model Boats offers so many different classic diesel tug builds. A shame it is seems no longer available?

I have one that I have used with the deckhouse to replace the mouldings in the MFM Lowgarth kit (their hull was good but wheelhouse very poor/wrong)  . . And another in the loft!

Hi
I know this is an old topic but just to say the semi kits for the Uskgarth, Butegarth, Bargarth (with the shorter engine casing) and the Danegarth are still available from me, as is the Dunhawk originally Empire Maisie Birch class, videos on you tube. Made to order and sorry but only if I have the time. There were certain people who said these tugs were copies (you know who you are) and that was very hurtfull, disrespectfull and totally untrue that is why I now usually only make them for people I know.
Cheers

Hi bosun I have used a few of your hulls and found them to be very good quality keep up the good work matey.

The Sea Queen is the birch class hull and the Sea Quest is the Bargarth hull    Geo

Hi Geo
Cheers Mate
I have always enjoyed looking at your builds going back to when the Tug Forum started a master model maker indeed. Great pics.
