Stevns Arctic Build
« on: March 13, 2018, 01:11:06 PM »

Hi all i started this project last year, but was unable to get line drawings of the tug. I did manage to get a GA drawing from
Robert Allan. I had a hull that i cut up and tried to use sections along with quite a bit of guess work LOL, I am building her to a scale of 1/32 at least that bit will be right, she will be 41 inches long  and 14 inch beam. I was sent some photos of the Stevns Ocean a model built for Robert Allan, hopefully she might look like her when finished.
Here are photos of the plug so far.

Don't take the GA as gospel. I have a couple from RA of the same boat and they are slightly different. Enough that a model made from each would have a different hull. Might just be an error or may be so that no-one can use a GA to make an accurate boat. And, no I'm no a conspiracy theorist.


Will be following this thread  with interest, always pick up a few tips from your builds.

Steve looking at photos i have of the Stevns Arctic the GA drawings look the same vessel. I will also be making the Schottel drives for this vessel so its going to be quite a long build.

She,s looking good! I really like the look of the tug but at 41 inches just too big for me if a 33/35 inch version was available I would definitely be interested. The size and weight of my Maltby hull was why I decided to cut n shut it.
    Keep the pics coming.
         Cheers,Pete

Trying to get as much detail onto the plug, hopefully save having to alter the finished hull later  :-))

HI batfish, not a lot of progress done, the better half decided she needed a new kitchen fitted and unfortunately that is the main priority at the moment, just about finished so back to the plug (unless she has something planned that i don't know about LOL)

Brian,

Good to hear you will be back on it soon.

Someone up here has decided the same and we are half way through
Installation.

Finally got back onto the Stevns Artic plug a lot of rubbing down, first coat of primer added today. A bit more rubbing down before she gets a few coats of paint then the fun will start, I have decided to have a go at making the mould. :-))

Really pleased with the way this plug is starting to look, spent most of the day rubbing down with 400 wet & dry.
