That's a lot of red ink there Norry, has 'Oor Wullie' upset you?

I think Wullie's 'question' could be justified, given the shape of the bow and the 'advertising material' displayed in the first photgraph.

You may have carried out a clever bit of recycling to produce the model.

...Hi Guys...

There are a few tugs in this class...All of varying Lengths & Breadths...
The tug that we are basing our build on is the "ISLAND DEFENDER" which is owned by "The Island Tug & Barge Compnay" of Vancouver Island..
Here is part of the plan that they sent to me...

The Hulls that we are using were moulded by a modeller who came up to the 3rd Scottish Tug-In at Richmond Park in Glasgow last year...
They were originally 32" long but have been Cut & Shut to 26" long...

...Best Regards...Norry...
