    Thanks Nerys, I'm sure other modelers will assist in various sections of the build. I had been building plastic kits for about 50 years, mainly for retail shops,
    and then started building/flying model planes for some 35 years, until I started to lose sight of the models, then took up boat building/sailing about 10 years ago, still learning๐Ÿ˜‰
    cheers, Peter

    Hiding your whatsit under a bushel of thingummybob again Nerys?๐Ÿ˜‰
    I'm sure, from what I've seen so far, that whatever you build you'd make a cracking job of it!
    Have to admit though that if we have the ultimate expert on US Eastern Sea Board Tugs on here - it has to be Commodore Ed (Figtree).
    He not only builds superb models of 'em like Ford built Model-Ts, he actually worked on 'em as well!! (NO! Not the Model Ts U 'orrible lot๐Ÿ˜ ) Before he got shanghaied into the navy๐Ÿ˜
    Have fun with the kit Peter๐Ÿ‘ Sure Ed will assist where he can.
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    That's very nice of you Peter, but there are a lot more experienced modellers on the forum than me. I've been studying boats of all sorts since I was a kid and that's a long time now, but I've only been building models for two years.

    Cheers,
    Nerys.

    Hi Peter,
    I've had a look at the Dumas kits and yes, she's a typical Eastern Seaboard tug. Looks great, wouldn't mind having a go at one myself. Sure you'll enjoy her.

    Not to sure if it's a traditional American tug Nerys,
    it has a very high bridge, almost level with the funnel,
    strange but nice, will post a picture when I get the boat.

    Pleased you managed to get your tug Peter. Will look forward to seeing her progress and finished model. Take it she is a typical traditional American tug.

    Cheers,
