Hello to Everyone

Hoping very much that some of you guys just might be able to help me,with some nice Posters/Stickers/pins/badges e.t.c. on the subject,of Course "TUGS" preference Steam Tugs (UK) but am open to any tug related material.

My dear wife is having a room transformed and adapted for my use which is excellent! just thought It wouold be grand to have a TUG theme present.

I am also looking at those fine ERTL Die Cast TUG Models from 2000 approx,so you can see the kind of thing

all the best Steve

Congratulations on having your wife ok a room for your tugboats and all. I bet it
will be super tugboat wise.

Here is a tugboat birthday card I made that might fit in for giving your wife a tugboat
happy birthday card. And, if you are going to collect tugboat items, tugboat humor
of kind of hard to find.



You can get a card here if you think it will fit in to your tug decor.

We all here would like to see your "tug cave" as it matures.

Steve,

Here is a link to an artist friend's web site:

http://www.sarba.com/home

He paints tugs as well as other ships and some people, too. Go to the virtual gallery and look at the original oil paintings and the prints. There are some of his pictures in my Franklin build thread as well.

Hi. Steve have a look in the tug art thread on the forum there are loads of tug paintings in it and some nice Thames tug paintings by my cousin Ian.  Umhalli is his forum name.  Geo
