    ๐Ÿ“ Tug Eppleton Hall

    Hi All,
    I'm trying to get either a kit or ready made model of paddle tugboat Eppleton Hall.
    I had this one made, but think it's all wrong in scale (more like a yacht hull than tugboat)! even the finish is wrong!

    Many years before she (the original) left our shores for San Francisco in 1969, I ofter used to go aboard and got to know her every inch, so to speak.

    My uncle Ben, was one of her skipper's at home port in Sunderland. My great grandad was her first in 1914.

    Any help or advice will be appreciated.

    I would love to be able to do that Onetenor, but both time and lack of experience won't allow.
    That's why I'm asking for help!

    Does anyone know where I can get a model of a paddle tug please or a later France Fenwick tug called Grangetown or Whitburn from 1960s?
    I arrived at an auction a few years ago in Boldon, Tyne and Wear, where a glass cased model was just sold, so i was very, very disappointed.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Does anyone know where I can get a model of Granetown a Tug my Uncle Ben used to be skipper of?
    Really important to me this.
    There was an auction a couple of years ago which included Grangetown at Boldon Auction Rooms but I was outbid, the price was just too high for me!
    However, some idea about who bought it or who can make one for me will be excellent.
    Thanks
