Hello to all of you, I'm new to this forum but I've been involved in scale model boating for a long time. Anyhow, I'm just now able to begin modeling again. Got my tug back down from the storage in the garage.

Over the next few weeks I'll be rebuilding/refitting my 85 ft. Harbor tug in 1/2" scale. It was built approximately 38 years ago from a "Fibo-craft" hull and kit. This later became know as "Dynamic" models. It was originally steam powered, but the plant was removed and electric power installed. The batteries have failed, paint is worn, needs new lines, bottom paint etc.

I'll try to get some pictures posted of it before and after, when I get back home next week.
