Looks like a really nice choice of boat to model there, looking forward to seeing more of the build.

Hi

I was just wondering if you are going to build it pristine or weathered etc like a working vessel?
Is the hull just a generic tug type? It looks good anyway.

Hey Tasmania - just popped into my head that there's a modeller in Deloraine - is that near you?

im not into serious painting as yet with the tech of making rust stains.
