Added two switches, one controls spotlight and nav lights and the other controls the work/deck lights.

Lets start a photo collection, like the Springer gallery or our Dickie Seaport Tug conversions:
This is how they start out...

And here's mine:

I still don't have any up-to-date photos of it on the water, but will hopefully take some soon!

All the models in this thread are very impressive - the first one (in Smit colours) is a great example of turning the basic Workboat into a realistic scale model whilst still keeping the same style + layout.

Hi Folks,

Hopefully I am adding photos of Yeovil Warships club's 'fleet' of these little tugs, and one each of my own on and off the water.

@Frank
This is a much smaller version it's only 36cm long instead of 50cm on the original seaport tug.

Work in progress

Here is my humble contribution to the Dickie thread.
My conversion is much inspired by the 'gribeauval' thread.

A Google translate of my thread on a danish forum is available at http://translate.google.dk/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=da&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=da&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.skalamodelskibe.dk%2Fforum%2Fviewthread.php%3Fthread_id%3D822%26rowstart%3D0&act=url

Below is my conversion depicted at her first floating trial.

Anybody know where to find these? Would make an interesting conversion too.
