Hi George,
     Yet another lovely model. Really impressed with the planking round the curve of the wheelhouse, she's a beautiful tug and again built to a very high standard, well done.
      Cheers,
          Pete/Faz.
The photo is my Lowgarth Mountfleet models but my own design and build (the kit quality and fit was very poor) I scatch built the superstructure from photos of the Foylegarth and scaled it off the figures. Sails superbly.

Hello again   Here are the latest pictures of progress on the Danube VII, still quite a few bits and bobs to add and all the electrics to sort out yet, but I am hoping to get her in the water on Sunday at our tug Fun day, just to see how she ballasts out and try to run her around a bit.

Another super job comes off the ramp. Not much grass growing on that slipway ! Lovely job George. Looking forward to seeing her afloat.  Brian.
