    Having built my Bangkok tug, it needed something to tow! In real life these little tugs get harnessed ,with others ,to 300 ton barges! In 1:24 scale Such a barge would take up a lot of lake,so I’ve been building the MMB Thames lighter. Cheated a bit and used the Sarik plans and laser cut frames, and then clad it in 1.5 mm obeche.
    Once primed ,I’ll have to play with ballasting. I’ve made two shallow drop in trays with real gravel glued on.
    More in due course
