Dumas Carol Moran 1/72 scale
« on: January 13, 2013, 03:54:28 AM »

Hi guys I thought I would post up my Carol Moran Build. I bought it from Tim B. along with a billings coastboat Bent that he has already planked the hull on. I was going to work on the 2 boats at the same time but got wrapped up into the tug as it was going well I started this 14 days ago and its the farthest I have ever gotten on a scale boat build. Heres some pics of my progress.

just ran across something that's not in the instructions when it tells you to paint the roof it doesn't reference painting the underside I am using the same green I used on the hull. I don't know if its correct or not but I have seen many tugs done this way so that's what I am doing. paint the underside and top of the roof before you glue it on.

Hello  hazegry,   the colour schemr that Moran gave me for mine is as follows. I don't know if the older tugs are the same I should think they are.
 
Hull above the water including the bulwarks,        Moran Hull green
Inside of Bulwarks                                           Black
hull below the waterline,                                   Red oxide anti fouling
Main casing and wheelhouse                              Moran casing Red
Main deck                                                      Moran deck red
texas or bridge deck and the wheelgouse roof       Light gray
all hanrails around decks                                    Light gray
Grabrails around casings                                     Black
deck overhangs and visor                                   White
 And all paint exept the anti fouling is Gloss.
 
Moran towage were kind enough to send me a complete set of plans for the Mirium as well as a set of paint samples of their In house colours A brilliant company to deal with.
 
All the best   george.
 
 If you have a B&Q near you the colour Nos for having the paint mixed are,
 
Hull Green   95YY07091
deck red    5050Y90R
casing red   S5540y90R

Thanks tug all the Moran tugs that pull us in and out never look glossy but they are working boats and don't stay pristine for very long. I need to go out to the base and get pics of them I guess. What I have is pretty close to what you do so its reasonable to assume there has been some change over the years, and this is a 50's version so I am going to stick to the paint description in the plans from Dumas. I do appreciate the info though as I may want to build a large one later on.

Hello!!!!

Congratulations for your model, sheís looking very good.
Moran use to paint a white line on the hull to their tugs, Dumas donít say anything about it, but I believe the tugs look better with it
Send you a picture of my Carol, best regards

 Hello!!!!
Another thing, the instructions do not mention anything about the tool boxes (The red ones on the main deck), but they are marked in the general plan and you do have the resources to do them inside the kit.
Best regards

Hello!

For the door details:
 Some rectangular pieces from a business card to make the representation of the hinges, and the handles are made with brass rods (sorry, donít remember the diameter)

Best regards

ok so I am going to keep the bent crane and I got the funnel done and the doors and front stairs done tonight.

 
I would also add that if at any point in the plan it tells you have just enough material to do something go to the hobby shop and buy some extra. I didn't mess anything up but having the reserve supply was allot less nerve wracking. for the stairs I glued the notched sections together with the spacer in the middle then glued the styrene steps on with some overhanging both sides (this is where the extra came in) and once it dried I trimmed it flush with the side and glued the outer skins on. The plans call for you to glue the front stairs together then slowly sand each step to fit my way was faster and my stairs are all the perfect size with no gaps.

 Hello!!!
Looking good, congratulations
Something that I recommend you to change is the motor, the instructions show you how to use a servo as motor, I feel it do not have enough power. I install a 4.8V Dumas motor and works really fine

I am thinking the same thing and plan on using the 4.8 motor.
