    I decided to build a canal/river maintenance barge and had a Thames lighter grp hull as a starter. This was too long so I took a chunk out of the middle and joined the two halves. The decks, hold, cabin and the rest was very much scratchbuilt. There is a lot about this model that would make either the purist or the local H&S man cringe but it was fun and looks great on a shelf in the workroom or even better on the odd trip to the lake. The Hiab crane although in wrong place I think really finishes off the model well the crane and the loo paper haha. Hope someone out there likes it. Regards (5/10)

    Glad you like it Roy, she motors badly as do most barges but is good fun and was a good use of a GRP hull which was unloved for years.
    Makes an excellent desk ornament and always causes interest.
    All the best Chris G
