Latest build Svitzser Maltby
« on: March 10, 2012, 10:03:34 PM »

Hi all here are some photos of my latest build the Svitzer Maltby. I started building her eight months ago and I think she will take about another six months to complete.

Hi Brian.

She looks the part but you have not got six months man, we've got a regatta at Balne Moor and your not bringing half a tug this time.

All the best

Hello

Is that scratch built or from a kit?

Hi Michael she is scratch built, but you can now buy a hull and plan from Tyne Models.

Hi Michael.

You can get the Hull & plan from Tyne Models but the down side for you, you have to test it at Balne Moor pond in the  UK.   lol
Not a bad trip out, just going to test the tug love, see you in four to five weeks time. Go on Michael get one.

Another excellent model with such a clean crisp finish, your a bit good at these tugs aren't you Brian  O0
 
          Still haven't plucked up the courage to try my Ironsider yet - will one day.

The whole thing really Brian  :embarrassed: haven't built anything without instructions yet and have really only ever scratch built replacement parts with a pattern to work from, but I do have the drawings and of course your photos on the cd so am definitely going to give it a go especially after seeing yours - can I trust the drawings implicitly for all the dimensions?

                 Please keep posting the pics, kind regards, Tony. :-))

Hi Tony, itís been a while since I built the Ironsider but if my memory serves me well I had no probs with the plan dimensions. You will not have any problem with the Ironsider just take your time and enjoy the build.  :-)) :-)) Just send me a PM if you have any queries.

Regards Brian
