SWAB - I'll try. I am not very good at taking photos whilst trying to sail my models. and in these strange times I can't pass either my Tx or camera to someone else. In any case I am not sure when I will be sailing - again for the same reason. Our club is still operating, but I haven't been for quite a while.

While building this model I suspected that the mouldings for the two halves of the hull were not identical. Having just made the stand I have the proof. I'm not sure if you can see from this photo, but there is a considerable difference between the two sides.

The final photographs

Just needs ballasting but my test tank is bust so it will have to wait.

A nice model but crappy materials spoil the build experience Rolling Eyes - I don't think I'll try another Dumas kit .... but you never know Shocked Wink

Thanks David - yes I usually avoid the grey ones, but I really like the shape of these American tugs.
Not sure about another. I have no ideas at the moment apart from a bid on ebay. I'll know tomorrow if I've won. Otherwise it may be some time. I did have another go at the 'Sun tug look alike' I started before this one, but its no go.
