Norseman ,your right ,my mistake ,she was the Flying Eagle ,from the Glasgow tug firm .i,ve got nearly all the gear to start /.but just need a bit of advice ,from the chap whose model i saw years ago ,she was a good looker and would not be out of place now with all your modern looking tugs ,incidently i got a hold of a good pic of the engine room ,absolutely rare as   but that,s that for now ,will wait .thanks all.
