Thinking of the next project and I'm being drawn to the Bustler class tug designed and built by Henry Robb shipbuilders where I served my time ,it looked good Sarik had a set of drawings but they are of a Canadian harbour tug rather than the ocean going salvage tug from the 1940s ,will continue to trawl the internet to see what I can find ,I know that the National Museum of Scotland has a model of HMS Bustler that I can use for reference. Cheers Marky👍

I jave the general arrangement plan of the Bustler class tug, but I do not have the lines plan. I am aware that these can be purchaed togther for about £14. I am not aware of how good they are, the GA that I have is original supplied from the builders archive many years ago. I have dealt with the Universit of Glasgow previously for plans, they hold the vast majority from the Scottish Shipyards and the North East, but I found they are quite expensive even for digital copies. If you search the Model Boats plans and then tugs, they are listed there. Otherwise try the Uni of Glasgow, they are extremely helpful but expensive. I would copy my GA plan for you if I had the facilities, my nearest big copier machine is a couple of hours away. Best wishes

Hi Marky,

Your interest in the Bustler design is correct. I have a relatively basic model of this class of vessel, built my late father and it is a superb runner. Earlier on this year, my partner Maggie spent some time in Liverpool for the Tall Ships rage. We found this example in the Royal Albert dock dry dock. It has been painted in a WW1 dazzle camouflage and modified to serve as a pilot boat.

Bright colours ,my kind of ship.better news on the plans they realized the weight and price of postage was wrong and had another guess ,weight 16.5lbs and postage of £46 +a few pence .why dont they just weigh the drawings and carboard tube its not rocket science,could drive to Lincoln and back for cheaper than latest postage quote especialy when postage for a mamod engine from the same company is just over a tenner .Cheers Marky😊

HMS Samsonia Bustler class tug Plans are on order with realistic postage ,👍thanks to all at Tony Green steam for their patience, a Henry Robb ship built by an ex Henry Robb apprentice (a long time ago) hope I can do it justice.
