    Has anyone built this tug ? ? ? I am about to attach the brass plates that rim the upper section of the hull. The square and oval opens In the brass have not been punched out. I am attempting to open these with a jeweler's saw. CAREFULLY. The brass Is thin - It can bend easily. These openings on the brass trim - can the brass belt be put ON the boat and THEN the openings are sawed open??? At this point I'm thinking of not sawing these opening at all -- I have extra brass trim.

    I cut the plates with a tin snip. The openings I drilled out and then used a file and Dremel tool with a drill bit. I predrilled all the rivet holes before attaching the plates.

    I'd be glad to. it's on the Cornwall Model Boat site. Enter
    Laser & Photo-Etched Sheets and you will find it. it is the brass fittings the way PAN ART should have done them.

    It was the brass sheets that shot me down on the Anteo. Double planking, okay. An engine that sat about an inch higher than the shaft, okay again. But the brass! Who can cut out the window frames without damaging some of them! Not me!

    I will try building the Anteo again, but I'll buy the photo etched brass set FIRST to see what I'm in for.

    ๐Ÿ˜„ The Anteo is a beautiful classic tug - a real workhorse tug. Good luck.

    Would you mind sharing the source of the brass trim you found. Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply - even though I posted mine about 3 years ago. Still... thanks. I actually dumped my ANTEO. Since doing that I have noticed the BRASS TRIM is for sale by other companies for the ANTEO with everything already trimmed out. Might try one more time.

    I built this boat. As for the brass, I cut all the openings, holes etc before installing on the hull. Much easier. I used a rotary tool like Dremel, first made a small opening and than carefully enlarged it with an abrasive bit. Results were very good.
