Hi Kim did you forget that the Shannon I built had the light horns on it and the lights work you can just see them in the pictures I put on here. Has any body else built them with working lights.
Cheers John

Hullo Mike.......

From the size of the funnel, it would suggest the model was based on a steam powered vessel

Neither of the elevation sections through the bow that you show are from or follow the line shape of the bow in the model Tug you show

From 7 sheets of plan detail, was there no reference to the name of the vessel?

just an update on this.
5,000,000 third party liability
able to sail on any water at events as a club
third party hall hire cover
100 member limit
model steam engine coverage
all for the princely sum of 178 per year 2018/2019

now the bad bit......
the company will not be taking any other clubs on under scheme as it is not available anymore, but they will honour any existing members!

1926 diesel tug?
Could very well be listed on the Taubsman Plan Service website, via Loyalhanna Dockyard.

Hi all! Back in the late 80's early 90's I purchased a set of Tug plans with aproxamatly 5-7 sheets. it was extreemly detailed and it was purchased by Taubman plans service.For example the cross section thru the length showed all of the wood beams sub assys. etc. s bit like the picture of the keel on the right of the picture and looked like this Tug. Would anyone have a clue what plan this was as my exxxx wife misplaced them. Thank you for your time!

I received this message from malcky56 which I'm posting here so members can respond to his request for assistance.

Peter Fitness,

Hi I am a real beginner at modelling.I purchased a set of plans and laser cut wood for the gentleman's runabout from Sari models website.I have deciphered to the best of my ability and made up the frame with the bulkheads no problem all glued and looking good.Once I started putting the cross pieces etc the frames that's when my issues started. I bought some wood from a local supplier which was ok a bit dry but not good for bending as it broke every time I tried.I then went to Cornish model boats website and bought some flexible Birch which bends great although it is a little soft.My problem is how to get the ends to marry up to the vertical keel piece to form the bow? I made up some small blocks which I glued to the ends to stop the clamps slipping off due to the angle, as the glue has dried the spars have become distorted out of shape making a slight bend in the bow now. I bought a pin pusher but this wont go into the plywood to hold it in place whilst the glue dries. Hopefully you will see from the pictures my predicament any advice would be welcomed  malcky56Could not download images don't know how to send you the source of the photos (not easy to do this stuff for me

To be contrary,

well. !!!.....we have grown to expect that from you, Colin, so no change there...... but don't worry, your little part of this country is safe from such disaster, because it's so heavily populated?? {-) {-) %% %% %% 

and I doubt theres any coal mines to subside as it's mostly chalk land if I remember from my geology course at uni,.....and I don't think they mine coal from chalk....just the odd fossil or two.  %% %) :-))
