my aluminium barge a meter long - Posted: 5 years ago by 0151rogers
I made a wooden barge for my tugs to pull but found this too heavy so I asked my old firm to make me one In 4mm aluminium It has been fully seem welded and Is water tight .I got them to powder coat the whole barge In black matt and I just added the red paint. The top just slides off so I can change the cargo I just wish that I had not made this so deep as It sits high In the water unless I add a load of ballast am using a 10 ltr water container at the min and Its still work In progress

keep up the good work cheers and I do like the test tank
Response by circle43nautical on the 7th Jan 2018
BRAVO ZULU! I also love the test tank, I'm investing in a 12 x 6'er next spring. My latest builds are getting too big for the tub!
It's great that you get your kids involved; I feel that RC is by far the best
entertainment: Helos, planes, trains, autos & especially BOATS!
Heck with the video games I say!
My gr'daughter loves learning to fly the helo or me chasing her around with it. My goal is to get good enough to land on the tiny flight deck of my 1:48
USCG 210' Cutter while underway, without getting wet, of course.
HAVE A SAFE RC BOATING DAY!

Hi!
This Is a scratch build from plans, of the "Angel's Gate II" , at the Los Angeles Maritime museum. This example has a bilge pump, diesel horn, and will be adding a fire monitor. My nephew Is pretty excited about It, he Is 4, and already has been practicing with the transmitter!

Sea Queen - Posted: 5 years ago by modeltugman
this model was made from a set of mouldings purchased from the Internet, they were for a 1944 Birch class empire tug, the one I chose to make was the Empire Walter, later re named Sea Queen and she worked In the Bristol and Avon area.

I am restoring a tug that is named "Avon Queen" she is a Birch class Empire tug.I have looked for her history, but only came up with Sea Queen. I wondered if you knew if there was an Avon Queen and what her empire name was. The model I have originally had a live steam engine in it, taken out before I bought it. She is 1.6m (5'3") long 1/20th scale.
