Bugsier 3
« on: May 27, 2012, 08:13:38 PM »

Hi there, any one built a Graupner Bugsier 3 tug boat? I have got one arriving on Tuesday for my next project and was wondering if there are any tricky bits that may catch me out.
Thanks in anticipation,
Regards,
Nick. :-)) :-)) :-))

Yep, make a hatch on the rear deck, where the winch is. Trust me on this one, shaft / rudder / motor access is a right b- to do without one... %)

Ah, many thanks, I will be on my guard. I am going to rc the towhook, will I need an extra fitting kit for that, or is it all in the box? Do you have any photos of the build and/or the finished job?
Many thanks,
Nick.

The hook is part of the superstructure, and is literally just a hook nothing else, so you'll have to make sure the hatch is very well secured to avoid it just flying off.

This one was mine :-)

I'll have to admit to not building it, well not all of it, I just finished it off and added the internals :-))

This is my old Bugsier, somewhat modified as you can see, and renamed 'Berius'.
