Mr Darby info
« on: June 08, 2017, 07:20:51 AM »

Hi All I'm building this tug and found lots of pictures of her, and as she is now Atlantic Salvor.
I cant find any pictures of her bridge interior, any help please.

Unfortunately, no. The hull is toast. As big as it is, it is no match for a 225 lb person falling on it. I need to find something the same size to use the motors and control system, or else, sell it all.

Yours is coming along very well and should be fun to use when it is done.

Cheers

Tom

Thanks Tom,
Hi (Mr Darby) NICE Tug I have nearly finished Mine now? another week
or two? Its a 1/48 Yorkshireman  ? but to run as a tower so got my own
Mods? it is not the (prettiest) as I'm not skilled at details but up to now
I love it so who cares? I hope it will tow well? its a bit full of gear?
Will ask about lengths of rope ? as I have fixed towbar? inside?
We will see I suppose? I admire anyone who has the skill to build Models like you well done.

Thanks for your comments, i hope you are pleased with your boat my opion is if you can build a boat and it looks good on the water that is all you need to do.
Don't forget pictures we all like them.
