 as my back had me laid up for the last few days but got some more painting done today. To help with the paint in the engine room access area acrylic paints were used as washes to help bring out the detail in this area



Even the lockers got the well worn look   



up next to go is the paint work at the front of the superstructure 





well that's all for today as you can see from the last couple of pics it's starting to come together

Not another Red Dragon Towing vessel, they are getting common as muck at the moment, in this neck of the woods :D
Seen the boat, get the teeshirt?

               Hi Bat 44--- well I suppose  2  is a lot to the" Numeric`s " in our neck of the woods, I still wondering how he copes
       with the plethora  of H.M.S. " Grey Things" on the Pond ---- especially when there above 10.
                I like the idea of a Teeshirt----what colour and badge ??

Ivor had a stoker who thought he was a joker

He'd pass water on the fire

Oh my god!!!  :o
I've just been looking at this build and what a brilliant job!
I too have recently bought a Springer hull from Models by Design at the recent model boat show in Ellesmere port, and I was thinking about making it into a Scale working tug.
I know it's not following "The springer rule book" concerning motor or prop size but I wanted to make it quite powerful.
I'm a complete newby to model boating so everything is a learning curve.
Your build has given me some inspiration as to what a good pusher tug looks like.

Keep up the good work!  :-))
