Hi to all on the tug section, i am returning to model boating, and tug building in particular  after 16 years away from the hobby, i,m decided to restart with a Pusher Tug 1/32 scale  this time round, a friend is supplying a (hull so thanks to him for that) about 25" x 12" x 61/2 deep, if anyone has any ideas for what i could build on it i would be most interested, and in your help opinions of course.  cheers keith.

Hi Chief and welcome

Yes I like the SD Engineer pics in post 24 and some more at http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/search.php?query=SD+ENGINEER&x=48&y=4

There was a thread for a tug called Chief - just thought I'd mention it.
