I am afraid there are no special techniques RAAArtyGunner I just applied a lot of heat. To be perfectly honest I was expecting the inner and outer lands to slightly buckle, but fortunately this did not happen. The only thing I can put this down to is the H bar that I used was old and probably made out of good quality material (not like the crap thatís on the market today)

Thank you  :-)) :-))

Brian,
Its was so good to be a lad living in a town with such a great river and to see tugs every day  like what you model your bringing my wondful childhood and memories flooding back to me.
Jimmy Nail got it so right when he wrote it was a great river great song which I play often,
 nice to see the old Palmers yard at Hebburn on tv the other night think its called A P now.
                                Regards Howard.

Thank you Howard  :-))  here are a few photos showing how I made the Engine room vent. The vent on the Cragsider is quite big, the diameter on the plans worked out at 35mm. I decided to make the vent out of plastic pipe to keep the weight down  to a minimum.
