Neglected to mention that it is 1/12 scale.

Wow - 1/12 scale.  1 inch to the foot.  Say 100 ft full size, so model must be around 100 inches or so.  I think 1/12 scale must be a typo.  May be 1/32, for model length around 30-35 inches?

Hi Chum444
I've got some photo's on my camera somewhere but in the meantime if you go on the subject: Svitzer Humber there are two photo's on there that I took of the Ferriby sister of the Svitzer Valiant up at Immingham three years ago. Also the Svitzer Valiant was originally a Humber based tug and then later transferred to Southampton.

I'll look those other photo's out for you

Regards

Kevin

 Sorry I messed up in that last message, what I meant was the Svitzer Ferriby was originally based at Immingham before being transferred to the Solent. Svitzer Valiant is still very much part of the Svitzer Humber fleet.
I'll look those photos out this weekend
Regards
Kevin

Here are the photo's taken all over the UK.
The Svitzer Valiant was seen up in Immingham in May 2016
The Svitzer Warden and  Svitzer Harty in Sheerness on a hot day in May 2014

The Warden and the Harty are the same Damen class as the Ferriby both these tugs have now both left Sheerness as the Svitzer Warden is stationed now in Liverpool and the Svitzer Harty is based at Southampton.
Regards
Kevin

Here some photo's of the Svitzer Ferriby taken in Southampton. The two taken on the quayside where taken shortly after she was transferred in 2012 from Immingham and the other photo was taken on the day that the new tug Svitzer Adira arrived in Southampton back in 2017 it just so happened I was in the area at the time and managed to get a photo, the Ferriby is the tug at the rear of the moored up tugs.

I hope these are of interest
Regards
Kevin

No problem at tall Bill. I knew I posted some photos on this site and I've come across them. Look up Svitzer Sheerness Fleet and there are two good pictures of both the Harty and Warden including one where the Warden I think goes off to do a job at London Gateway so theres a nice side on photo.
Regards
Kevin

Kevin,
 I have not been through all your photos but the ones I have viewed are very helpful. You have some close ups that allow me to decipher some details.

The rest of the photo's here Biull are of the Svitzer Harty or Svitzer Warden taken down at Sheerness in 2014.
I hope these are useful with your build
