I mentioned that I had ordered two new plans to consider as another project. These are they.

First of all a simple tug based on the SunXXI

Next Project? Dscn1759

The other is a Glyn Guest Work boat that uses a vectored thrust arrangement

Next Project? Dscn1760

I have decided to make Sunny. I will start a build log when I get some material. I had quite a problem finding a supplier that had both the balsa and Liteply that I required. Unfortunately my local supplier is still not available.

The work boat is more difficult. I am not sure that I can make the thrust unit. I will be doing more research on this and some experiments to assess if I have the necessary skills. Shocked If I do eventually decide to attempt this it will be a different hull construction. The plans call for 12mm pine and 1/8th ply from B&Q Shocked  Shocked  Shocked  Shocked

I've also bought a Dumas model of a US Army tug, but that is going into store until October at the earliest. lol!  lol!  lol!

I've also listed two models for sale on Ebay  Rolling Eyes

Fred - mine will be very much a "looks a bit like" a Sun XXI. Hopefully my materials will arrive today and I can start work.
