In Yorkshire working at the moment but hopefully I'll be back on my model at Christmas and fingers crossed my voith tug be finished January / February time. In the meantime the away work pays the bills but I keep looking on this site to see what other tug models are on the building board.

Hi One and All

I am working on a MMM Lady "T" for me this will not a fast build as I am working in a unheated garage, so it will be when the sun is out it is time to play.

After reading AlanP wright up and seeing the photo's that he has posted I am now thinking that I should low the rudder post to make it easier to fit the rudder control horn and connecting rod.

That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

Hi All
It's been a while Since my last post on here (sorry)

I have just started to  find a bit of time again to start building / finishing my model tug River Star( small 27ft sea worthy vessel is designed to operate coastally and on all the rivers throughout the USA ),
I will post a few pic's  of my repairs and the new colours she will be in for the new season .

Hi tugboyben
The cervia is on of my favourite tugs , I will be interested in how your build goes

Not just this winter, but the 6 or 7 after this winter also, Heerema's Kolga in scale 1:50.
My buddy Dennis will take care of her sister Bylgia.
Progress can be followed on:

Both bow-, and sternthruster are fully 3D printed, all running parts are metal or brass.
The forward swingup thruster is a combination of 3D printed parts and CNC milled brass parts.
