Moorcock - Posted: 22 days ago by GeoffA
I bought the Moorcock from a fellow boater and decided to rebuild her as the Moorcock. The hull was stripped bare and the prop-shaft tube removed and completely remade with a new prop. The hull was then repainted and the life boat and davits added The superstructure was cleaned up and remade with a Robbe spring loaded grappling iron added to the rear deck.She is powered by a 24v scooted motor salvaged from a garbage bin and has 4 x 12v 7amh SLA's to provide power. She is a good strong vesel to sail and is often used as a recovery tug.

My 1:48 Ionia. This was originally a bad 1980s kit and converted the kit into the Ionia as it resembled her alot.

Just finished adding a crews quarters and pump engine house to the stern of my barge, then added the necessary bitts for stern pushing.

Checking for size comparison and scale! The barge is 50 inches long by 12 inches beam, will draw 2 inches light and 6 inches loaded. I plan on making it an oil tank barge with a swiveling boom and two deck houses aft for the pump engine and housing for crew.

RMAS JOYCE A193 - Posted: 3 months ago by Nutbourne
This is one of the limited edition Sirmar kits that was produce in the early 1990’s.this model was made by a friend of mine who’s a dockyard fitter and turner it was made about twenty eight years ago. Based on a tug that I worked on in and around Portsmouth harbour. This model has a working voith unit opening engine room skylights. Working lights, removable deck hatch to get at the unit like the real boat, the superstructure and gun whales are made from plasticard. The fender was made by a friend to the same type as used on the tug. The wheelhouse is copied like for like. The towing hook is copied from photos and slips like the real one. In all my years I haven’t seen another one like this . Sirmar made twenty numbered hulls as kits .

The model is the Dumas El Pedro 30 inches length, 12 inch beam, drawing 4 I inches, which should change with more ballast. My mates suggest a barge is necessary so I am attempting a scratch build with leftover ply from other projects. Comments welcome!

Hi, There!

I remember I had the Tug Neptune. Some 35 years ago.
She's a very nice boat. And very maneuverable!
