more pics second test with barge. welcome darklord thank you for your comments on my tug, if you go down the scale rout there's a lot of boats you can choose from, don't build to a small scale as i think the hull shape is better suited to the larger scale, my tug is built to the scale of 1/24. O well could be shoot for that comment but that is what i think     






here's some pic's of some tugs to give you some ideas

Can I just confess to the following... I liked the colours of your dingy on the back of the barge so much that I partially copied the colour scheme for the one on the back of Resolve. :}
