    Today was the first time on the water for the tid tug to check the ballasting, speed and wether I had any leaks. All seemed fine, so for my second build from plans I’m really happy.

    I still have a fair amount of work to do on her, but at least it’s very usable.

    It’s got a 540 motor with 6:1 reduction gearbox driving a 50mm prop, and it plods along nicely but has a bit of extra speed if I need to blip the throttle. It is built in 1/24 scale from plans purchased from Sarik, and has a 6v Pb battery.

    Sounds like a young version of me.
    Only iron collars and cuffs as the rest is hidden.
    Cheers Colin.

    You can’t see the state of his trousers where he wiped his greasy hands😊.

    Very realistic model, I suppose the skipper just had to wear his best uniform for such an important test.
    Cheers Colin.
