    Hi Graham, have you got plans for this boat? I believe
    Models by Design have a twin hull craft very similar to this, might be worth a look๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    I totally agree Martin, every time I move my Yorkshireman or Irishman tugs, guarantee something will fall off, little bits, not big chunks!, and your HMS Cottesmore has some very fine detail work, love boats with deck clutter?you know what I mean.

    Your comments about HobbyKing are correct Pete, I have never had to return anything (yet), but the service is 1st class, they usually let me know when there is an offer of free p&p, and keep me up to date on delivery via text messages, and they are great on prices. Can;t say much about Krick, other than there Grimmershorn has turned out a nice ship.๐Ÿ˜Š

    Thanks Nerys, I'm sure other modelers will assist in various sections of the build. I had been building plastic kits for about 50 years, mainly for retail shops,
    and then started building/flying model planes for some 35 years, until I started to lose sight of the models, then took up boat building/sailing about 10 years ago, still learning๐Ÿ˜‰
    cheers, Peter

    Not to sure if it's a traditional American tug Nerys,
    it has a very high bridge, almost level with the funnel,
    strange but nice, will post a picture when I get the boat.

    Pensioners were not detained Fleet, as it was confirmed they had committed no offence, and were able to leave the authorities, no doubt to try again.

    Patrol orders acknowledged.
    Will patrol said areas, and check on black pudding smugglers, as I used to live in I.O.M. Will also check illegal supplier from Bury, the home of the wonderful Black Pudding. (are they not to your liking Fleet?)๐Ÿ˜
