The pumpkins come from competition growers, these small ones are used for racing.
They carve them then run three or four races in the afternoon.
We are just taking advantage of the fact that they put them into the water at all.

lovely model , I have been working on a new pusher from scratch for a while now and have finaly managed to get her ready for water trials .
She still needs the top finishing and maybe changing ,as i have not decided on the finished result ,she is very manoverable on the water ahead and astern . but what do you think so far ?.

A Bunkerbarge!  Now we're talking!

Great collection of barges though Ben, you're certainly putting together quite a fleet there and they are going to look really good with the tug collection.
