Thanks !

Man, this is just the very best photographic documentation I could EVER ask for ...
Now I HAVE to build one, just as accurate as I can possibly do it ...
As these images are now available, now duty bound to create ....
Thanks VERY MUCH for starting this thread, I just don't think it could get any better.

These photos were taken by a model maker, so they are full of the kind of detail we’re looking for.

Tim follow this build for real inspiration on building a TID:

Thats incredible brass work - skeg, windlass, steerage, steering gear in the pilot house -
The pic at the end where he's passed out in the chair tells it all ...
And where did he get that plan ??????????

redlined_b16a, saw the Kingstom Mouldings hulls, they have two sizes !
It is also possible LHD has TID hulls ... if they are KM stock, Don may have 1/20th and 1/24 as well ...

Tim have you seen the lines of the hull on a TID? It is deciduously simple. Hard chine, flat bottom, and simple bow. I believe the Kingston hull comes with plans(?) I plan to do a total scratch build.

Tim 1/24 is the size I'll be going with. Have to finish he Major first.

TGCanada you actally helped push me towards a TID by kicking in the smoker idea. Looking forward to an update on that!

Rmay, by the time Major is done, I should have a full workup of the smoker

I have three projects on the go right now. One of them is a boat to put the smoker in, and that is top of the list.

By the way, the smoker design, while using the same principles, has evolved significantly

TID kit

Morning all ...
I found a company that has COMPLETE TID Tug kits, LESRO Models in the UK.
I bought TWO !
They are 20.5 inches long.
The quality looks quite high, two seperate hull halves so bulwark is already done on each side.
Came with a motor !
Designed for RC, great plans, complete and clear ( unlike MANY other manufacturers ).
I will build one static, one RC.
I will use the photos above to do my VERY BEST to detail the model.
Please see attachments, the contents were inspected and qualified by my Project Manager.
