    My V4-MA-1 US maritime Commission tugboat. 45+ built in WW2. Based upon the the Dutch(at the time the HMS) Zwarte Zee. Plank on frame construction cover in F/G. Lights, sounds and fire monitors.

    I know this tug and the detail is amazing. She's a pretty sight on the pond, and being ToraDog's first plank on frame build makes it even more impressive.
    Beautiful build!

    I totally agree, but you know how our Navy was... is. A number of them did operate, post war, for a few years in private hands, but I have found little, if no, photo evidence. I suppose my own scheme would suffice.
