               ...Hi Guys...

I took a wee trip down to Largs pond this afternoon to give SCOTCH PRIDE a trial...

It was a bit too windy at the pond so just carried out ballast trials...Failed I,m afraid...Too much weight up forward...I will have to shift the batteries to longways right up the centre of the boat instead of both stored in the bow...

... Billy, I sent the couple a wee update on the TUG-IN. on 17th June...I would liked to have seen Colins trials..Good to see he,s having fun with the NEDERLAND...

...Steve, I,ll let you know about the decks getting wet going astern when I get her to go astern in water...It should,nt matter too much as the deck hatches are well sealed down...

Wee Johnny (my 7 year old son) is starting his Tug-Towing training next week so that Poll has someone of similar brain levels to compete with...See You All Soon...Norry...

                    ...Hi Guys...A Happy New Year...

Here she is Tonight  after 8 hours  spent Today with the dremel cutting out the Wheelhouse windows...Then built the wheelhouse...Ready for sanding & priming Tomorrow...
The paint work on the hull  is also advancing nicely...

P.S. My hands are still tingling...

            ...Best Regards...Norry...
Looks very nice, what is the wood that you use for the superstructure, and how do you get it to look so unwood-like when finished.   :)

         ...Hi Flybobby...
The wood is 1.5mm Plywood from the local model shop...
After rubbing down i gave it a couple of coats of White Plastic Primer from Halfords...
I hope this answers your questions.
...Best Regards...Norry...

Thanks norry, will give it a try when I get to that stage of the build.  Much prefer working with wood than plasticard.  ;)
