A barge for my harbor tug
« on: July 16, 2021, 09:24:10 am »

Hallo,


last year it came the idea for a pull/push toy suitable for my harbor tug "Fairplay VI".


During the build it became more as intended and additional ideas were realised.


The video gives a summary of the build.

Thank you Martin.


Found another set of base plates for the barge; this set should display some equipment for demolition-work, which needs to done from the waterside.





First a scale demolition excavator was ordered at Amazon and equipped with signs of a more local company.





The base plates were weathered and other equipment (mostly CNC-milled Cut-outs) were obtained.





Next step is building the equipment and finding a senseable location on the barge.







So far so good


Cheers

Hello,

The excavator was weathered for a more realistic look:

Off to the paint shop.

Hello,


a barge with the equipment as described above was launched yesterday for the first time:

The payload has now reached its limit; at full throttle the front of the barge gets flooded (see Video):
