    Hi Ron - recycled cereal packets we use for mock ups - cant get much cheaper than that - the card is strong enough - thinner card material does not always give the "true" picture as we have found out at our cost a bit too late on commercial jobs. The 1kg corn flake type boxes yield a good quantity locally - found another use for yard of biscuit boxes too - ideal for holding balsa planks - as are neon/led tube light cardboard boxes...........
    You really are getting along with Miss Katherine - a very good job you are making of it as well - most impressed. Are you going to plate the hull ? If you have a local print shop who do Litho printing - (they usually throw the plates away after one use) - ideal for plating - and a dressmakers wheel used on the wrong side makes rivets if you need those at all. Weld seams should be easy enough scribed with a ball point pen or knitting needle from the wrong side. Cardboard also works but not nearly as well.

    Hi Ron,
    It is always a bit tricky making paper mock-up's but it looks like it will work out.
    keep it up.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    The owner of Miss Katherine, in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, gave me advise on the aft hull shape.

    The bulkhead designs are not quite there yet, but the deck features, wheelhouse, and engine room are fine.

    Send me the link please. Not that I will change my design, but the bulkhead locations and design of inner components always helps.

    I was a welder fitter for ten years, knowing this tug was built in 1959, they would not have cnc, plasma arc cutters, or other modern construction components. Keep it simple I am saying to my self.

    I see in the photos of the hull, plates were about 12” wide and welded. The plates are not curved as you would see with steamed wooden planks.

    Hi Ron - Checking the RC Groups site for info came across a 45 utility tug by Loyalhanna dockyard - looks very similar to Miss Katherine - apparently based on an old Microglass hull if that means anything to you.
    If you look at the Boats section on RC groups you will see the Ad/blurb - might be of interest as there are some large pictures and a few details, perhaps they might sell a set of plans separately - they make it in various scales it seems. Its round bilge and not multi chine however.

    Ron,
    It will be fantastic to see this project go from photos to drawing to completed model.
    I wish you luck, and hope to see a build log soon.

    Hi Ron
    looks great - you are really doing a good job there, lines are hard enough on a single chine hull - let alone one like this. Found it helped when doing multi chine hulls to draw a round bilge frame first then split it into however many chines needed. Done a couple that way - don't know if that would help you at all - don't want to teach grandmother to suck eggs - as you say its hard work getting them right .
    Would love a copy when you are finished - its a beautiful tug.
