FairLady (nee Aziz)
« on: May 02, 2012, 09:21:14 PM »

I finally have finished my model of the tug Aziz. Started in August '11 I didn't track the hours but a rough guess is about 900. A lot of work but also a lot of fun. I have renamed her "Fair Lady" and will in future posts refer to her by that name. I have had a trial run in a friends pool and was pleased that I only needed to add a small amount of ballast at the stern for her to float at the design waterline. Plan to take her for a spin on the lake tomorrow.
I am considering building the Envoy WWII tug from Model Slipways and would be interested in any comments about that model that you care to share.
What a great hobby!

What a smashing job you've made of her.  Well done indeed.

Hope you take some pictures of her on the water.   :-))

cheers

I have a video but don't know how to post it. Do I handle it like a picture?

I'm afraid you cannot post videos on this site.  You could make a film for YouTube and when it's up and running, copy the address bar, and post it here.

I'd like to see it as I've built Aziz myself.
