Cut & Shut Logging tug
« on: October 17, 2012, 06:48:21 PM »

Hi All,
This is my latest build a 1/32 scale cut a shut logging tug being made from an old hull that's been hanging around in the workshop.
Not sure what I'm going to base it on , possibly a Harken Towing tug.

Super job - very like the Ken Mackenzie? Did you have a plan or just by eye?
