    Eezie build RAF fire boat with some adoptions ,shortened bridge ,added mast , Scenario boat is seconded for use by the red cross to transport wounded ,injured or refugees to larger hospital ships, don't know if they existed but heres my take with the help of my grand daughter Eva (6/10)
    (Fire Boat) 1956
    Eezibuild 50+RAF fire rescue boat ,laser cut from 3mm MDF oak decks ,don't know if there was a fire boat numbered 1956 but it was a good year so that's the number decided the fire sign and numbers should be air force blue laser cut from photographic paper ,vents were 3D printed still some finishing touches (5/10)
    (Tug Boat) TBC
    Scratch built loosely based on the St Chanute ,made from recycled wood the winch is made from parts of an old sewing machine the mast is copper pipe and an artists paint brush handle the rails are split pins with 1.6welding rod soldered the rigging is cord from a venetian blind dyed using indian ink ,the only bought items were the propeller ,anchors ,paint and glue (ESC: scratch build) (5/10)
