PostSubject: A FUTURE PROJECT   Sun Jul 05, 2015 9:12 pm

Many years ago I did a review for Marine Modelling mag for the "new"  Caldercraft tug Ryhope.

The model was a lovely little thing to put together and even nicer to sail, and I kept it for a good few years, but sadly I sold it for a pittance.............and soon after Caldercraft discontinued it.

Luckily a couple of years ago I saw one for sale, unbuilt, and as my younger daughter took a shine to it, I bought it.............but apart from doing the hull , deck and running gear to basics, it has sat in the workshop since just after buying it..............until last night.

Was looking on Ships Nostalgia site when I came across this painting of a Pennsylvania Railroad Harbour tug by  Dave Boone aka "tugboatpainter" called Willmington.

I have decided to build the model, when I get round to it based on the Ryhope, ( which my daughter likes) but with a second superstructure on her based upon the painting, for when I sail her.........I think I will be able to make a nice little cross over tug .........but boy oh boy do I like the tug in the painting.

Neil,
I had a Ryhope  long time ago.
With a decent combing she would happily sail when larger models returning because of weather.
In fact I am collecting a nearly completed one.

aye Bob........they are a great little model....they pop around on rough water like a cork if you have a tall enough combing to stop water getting in.

I built the first one for the review model in Marine Modelling monthly (later to become MMI - International) back in the 1980's.was a great little boat.

I'm trying to sell one at the moment for an old friend who is undergoing tests for the big C.......he's clearing his pitch......£125 inc motor esc, 27meg rx and power battery if you know anyone wanting another..built nicely but in dull none standard colours
