Here is my latest offering , she is a model of the Sun XVII  ex Empire Margaret, a Foremost class wartime built tug, there were 3 of them working the River Thames from 1945 up until the mid to late 60s, they were Sun XVI   ex Empire Leonard, the Sun XVII ex Empire Margaret and the Cervia Ex Empire Raymond, of them the Cervia is the only one still afloat ,she is moored in Ramsgate Harbour Kent.

The model is scratch built with a plank on frame hull built to a scale of 1/32nd, she has 12 volt electrics with rotating Radar and working lights.
she is seen sailing at Bluewater Kent.     Geo
