"SCOTCH PRIDE" model progress report...
« on: December 27, 2006, 03:10:29 am »

                                 ...Hi Guys...

...Here is a wee picture of my latest model project...

"SCOTCH PRIDE" is a 1/32 scale model of one of a series of Dutch tugs known as the Dutch "P" Class.
"DUTCH PARTNER" & "DUTCH PRIDE" being 2 examples of this class...

So far the motors, shafts, props. fixed korts, sterrable rudders, bow thruster & decks have been fitted...The deckhouse is now half finished...

This is built from the information that i got from my request on Model Mayhem Forum...

...I hope you like it...Best Regards...Norry...

Looks like a good start!

I look forward to your photos of progress.
All the Best,

                ...Hi Mike...Merry Christmas...

The hull is a Mobile Marine Models, "NANGEE" hull which has been re-shaped slightly...

I have other pictures of the build so far, but I have to get them re-sized before i can post them...

I,m glad you like it...

Hi Guys,

Just a dumb question, which is better, a steerable korts system, or fixed korts with steerable rudder,
I have no idea which is the better system as my tugs have steerable korts, I do not have a problem with them but I am curious...

The steerable Korts are far better for steering astern, as fixed Korts dont have any directional thrust astern.

I agree, stearble korts every time, my Nangee is single steerable kort, in some ways manoevreing is easier with single steerable kort rather than twin fixed korts and rudders, unless you have a mixer fitted. Just picture it, standing  TX in hand, trying to increase speed while turning at the same time, you do get used to it but many people end up with mixers fitted.

                            ...Hi Steve...

No Trials as yet as I have no test tank at work, But I have a bath at home...
I,m planning on tank, ( I mean Bath) trials on Tuesday Night to check ballast situation...Will fit batteries Tomorrow along with a few more fittings like Towing Gear & a removable Hiab deck crane...

I will need to spend a day checking over my 1/32 scale STANTUG as my single screw towing tug for next year...

Has John Pollet managed to buy a single screw tug yet ? ...There are a couple of possible candidates on E-Bay at present...

I,m looking forward to having another go this year...

      ...All The Best...Norry...

Is this an Anglian Man Norry?, I am very impressed with the Anglian Man hull, very dry on deck considering the size of it, and it was a fresh day today, towed my barge very well. Maybe a 1605 next, single screw!!

           Hi Norry.
         
           think I've got fitted up with a single screw tug. A girl class tug from Bob,
           Plus got my old fairplay back.
     
           Thanks
     
           John.
