Old RTR Southampton Tug. - Posted: 5 years ago by jelley_baby
The fitted motors expired so had to open her up and have now fitted some more standard motors 400's I think but they work and run time Is reasonable. The motors are coupled through 3:1 gearboxes and positioned more to the front so as to allow for a larger battery.

HI Jelly Baby
Regarding crew figures, I used SIKU which are 1/32 they are German and good quality. SIKU do farming toys and the ones I use are the Tractor drivers. I have fitted them on the seats In the rear of the bridge. They are available from the UK via
SIKUDIRECT.COM on the sites Page 3 4. Part No 7071 for a 6pcs @ £5.90 all Inc or 0887 (2pcs) @£2.40 Inc. I use them for other 1/32 boats as well.
Hope this Info will help. Regards Doug.

Hull plating detail - Posted: 6 years ago by modeltugman
The way that I do my hull plating Is......to use printer paper about 90gsm, and divide the hull up Into approriate lines horizontal and vertical to represent the plating once the hull Is sanded and smooth of course.
then cut the paper Into the sizes that you need to represent the hull plating.
then thin down waterproof PVA glue so that Is like double cream and then to represent the plate joggling lay each piece onto the edge of a steel rule so thar about 1/8th Is overlapping and then run your thumb nail along the edge of the rule this will give you a joggled edge, repeat If you need more than one joggle per plate, have a practice first and see how easy It Is.
then just stick tmen onto the hull using the PVA glue remembering to overlap the joggles ( I like that word). Easy peasy.
once every thing Is really hard and dry ,give the paper two or three coats of the PVA all over and It dries like glass.
