Hi all i am building this tug and found lots of pictures of her, and as she is now but cant find any pictures of the bridge detail.
Has any one got some pictures on the inside.

Looking good Bro. Is the woodwork all pre cut now, years ago the one that I built had really rough wood in the kit.
Do you Remember this one ? She had 2 Robbe kort and props.

How did you get on with the bridge details?
There have been several recent Darby builds on rcgroups.com, I'm sure someone there will have some good reference.

Just did a quick search on the regroups scale boats forum. Try:

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/search.php?searchid=61334313&query=Mr%20darby

Should be something there.
