    Built this from a hull and plan. Uses twin steerable Kortz nozzles made from sheet brass rolled and silver soldered. Twin car fan motors and Electronize ESCs giving spin on the spot control and massive pulling power. Top is all plasticard and has working lights including the arrays for different types of towing.

    Thanks Dave, sorry to say it's not my work, that's as it came from the modellers widow.
    My work is to complete it, I've also got a sister ship the Hazelgarth, again another sad case of no plans to complete, but have managed to get some photos of the real thing.
    I seem to get lots of boats needing finishing off or rebuilding/repairing. It's just that when I'm at vintage shows with my display I can't refuse offers of sad boats in need of tlc.
    Cheers Colin.

    Hi Colin
    Looks like you have made a good start on the model. Yours, unlike mine is based on the Mobile Marine Models hull - I bought mine at NewBrighton some years ago.
    I believe they still sell a template pack providing you have a valid hull number. It's some years since I built my model and I'm not sure what I have kept but will have a look and come back to you.

    Thanks for your comment.
    Yes I did build a barge and the Club had two of the mobile marine barges so I have three to play with. Trouble is the sailors on my club waters have a nasty habit of sailing between the tow so I have to choose when to try any towing. I don't have any recent pics but found one taken some years ago which is rather nostalgic. The tug is a Lady Jan named Daniel

    That's a great looking model sir. Do you have the plans still,.
    I have an unfinished one that was given to me last year but I have been unable to locate plans to finish her. It came with 2x850 motors but not installed.
    If you have the information that I need to finish her I would buy a copy from you.
    Cheers Colin.

    Very lovely model! Have you built any barges to play with, or are they on your list?
