    The lighters are coming on well, be interesting to see both tug and lighters afloat. I take it you will have her pushing two lighters alongside each other.

    This project is one for all I need to make one myself to rescue my Crash Tender when it eventually sails.
    Ps I found your picture background quit amusing, a challenge in its self, I first thought it hundreds of parts but then realised it was the floor.

    Hi Jacko,
    That is a super little pusher Tug.
    I can already see it rescuing a model boat that is in destress.
    I like the use of the notice board pins for bollards.

    Might make a good rescue boat for our Wee Nips. With the drought over here, they are often getting bogged.

    Thanks Jacko, but I'm just a dumb engineer so I've archived my mags (also the digital versions) by year!
    Can you tell me what year/month that issue appeared please?

    Thanks MarkyπŸ‘
    I have a digital subscription and have received the December issue but not the Special πŸ€”
    Cheers, Doug 😎
    BTW: In the December issue there's an excellent article about a smoke generator, and 'puffing' mechanism, for simulating gun fire from the main battery of the battleship HMS Iron Duke. An impressive 48" model. Worth a readπŸ‘

    Doug, perhaps as it is the digital edition of the magazine that you receive, the plan may not be included, but I would have thought the 'how to' article would have been.

    Mornin' Nerys,
    Yep, that's been irritating me for months that the Digital Issues do not include the free plans 😠 So I'm gonna change that at the upcoming renewal.
    Originally I had a both print and digital subscription. But summat went south when the mag changed the company handling their subscriptions and suddenly there was only a choice of one or the other!
    And I still haven't seen the Winter Special yet, which apparently contained the Push Tug article and plan. Ho humπŸ€”

    Hi Jacko,
    That's a most generous offer which I gladly accept πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
    Can you scan the A4 pages into a single continuous pdf file?
    If not, don't worry. I can work with a set of jpg files as well - just takes a little longer to import into my CAD programme πŸ€”
    Will PM you post haste (or should that nowadays be Email haste!?😐)
    Cheers, Doug 😎
