    Hi Martin555,
    That is the plan as I am stretched over 3 boats including Euro-Girl and waiting for paint, ZAP Poxy etc. I will be taking photos of a this partial kit tomorrow.
    I would like to give the members of an idea of what to expect from Mobile Marine. This will be the third Mobile Marine Tug at Centurion Club in SA. Two Members have a Brackengarth and an Ayrton Cross.
    Only old in years not mind or soul.

    Hi Ian,
    I do hope you will be doing a build log on this unusual Tug.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Due to shutdown and a 'non-availability' of certain items, I decided to dust off a hull and semi kit that I bought from Mobile Marine Models. It is called Euro-Girl
    Designed as a Multi-Task, Multi-purpose unit, this rather 'short' tug, a little under 80 feet / 24 metres l.o.a, is the pinnacle of brute-force & intelligence. Conventional stern drive tug, with steerable korts & the option of bow-thrusters; Pusher; Anchor Handler, with the option of several different cranes... and Fire Fighting capabilities, plus, inshore salvage work all within the scope of Euro - Girl.

    With 'her' various winches, windlass, crane, fire monitors & salvage equipment, the Euro-Girl offers the modeller a compact, yet very 'full' tug.... fit for any occasion.

    Working in the modeller's favour, the Euro-Girl as a new concept boat, offers several liveries, thus allowing 'free-license' of colour scheme for this compact 'full-of-fittings' tug, making the model the ideal choice for those 'Tuggers' who require a Powerful boat, that will 'do-the-stuff' as well as offering the ultimate in detail.

    Working fire monitors & full working lights... the Euro-Girl is fitted with the 'New' regulation lights.... i.e. direction-of-travel, thus double the amount of normal lights, making an impressive array of illuminations.... plus, an intriguing array of winches & fittings giving an overall 'busy' appearence.
    The Hull is Rust coloured, highly detailed GRP (glass fibre). extra laminates in & around the 'stress' points, to give the strongest construction possible.
    Superstructure is from either timber or plastic, which ever is your modelling preference.
    Single or Twin screw, steerable kort nozzle drive with choice of nozzle size & electric motor.

    Scale ..... 1:32nd
    OAL - 29 1/2"" (755mm)
    Beam - 9 3/8"" (240mm)
    Here are some photos of a completed build. I will in the next couple of days be posting photos of what was supplied.
