    Recently acquired fibreglass hull and plan. Build to take place in parallel with others on the bench over the next six months. (5/10)
    (Fire Boat) Fireboat
    Recently acquired Fireboat that needs refurbishment. Existing loose single shaft removed and twin shafts and rudders fitted. To fitted with twin (possibly brushless) motors, each with its own battery and controller. Updates to follow. (5/10)

    I am about to start building this model of an existing Orkney island ferry - due to be in service until 2025. Construction started, all port holes and windows cut out, deck access doors and rear ramp cut out. Running gear loosely fitted prior to alignment and epoxying in place. Photo is of the real vessel in its short form, it has now been lengthened by 4.5m. (Motor: Mtroniks 600) (5/10)
    (Tug Boat) Al Khubar 2
    This is a Model Slipway kit of a series of 3 tugs built in 1976. In 1977 she struck a submerged object and sank but was subsequently salvaged. Last known Lloyds record was in 2002 being operated by Grandi Lavori โ€“ Fincosit S.p.a. Genova. Al Khubar 1 was destroyed in 1990 in the Iraq/Kuwait conflict. Al Khubar 3 is still operating, having been convered to tug/dredger working under the name of Flat Holm. (Motor: Torpedo 500) (9/10)
    (Working Vessel) M.V. Conserver
    Model Slipway kit of a full size buoy maintenance/survey vessel still working out of Leith harbour, Edinburgh. Maiden voyage took place a week ago, it still needs work to finish it. it performed really well with a very tight turning circle. Further testing shows a more realistic speed using a 6volt power source instead of the original 7.2volts. (Motor: Electronize 545-12) (ESC: Mtroniks Viper 15) (8/10)
