Aquacraft Atlantic


Is there any real boats out there which look "something about the same shape" as the Aquacraft atlantic tugboat. I am going to try to get in "in scale". I have riped it for all the "cheap" offscale plastic now and really just need pictures of a boat that at least have the same shape on the ship hull.

For inspiration.

patmat can be a real **** sometimes.

The Atlantic tug is not modeled after any known real tugboat. A guy that used to participate here (Horrible Harry) claimed he had a photo of a Russian tug that looked remarkably similar but he never posted it.

That said, the Atlantic can be kit bashed into something very nice looking as evidenced by numerous examples shown here and on the internet.

Just let your imagination wander.

hehe. Great inspiration that picture.

So the ship hull is not based on or look like anything? Or anything that could fit on the ship hull. I am totally new in this game and not good at just "making up" my own house and stuff.

"The other myth is that English beer is served at room temperature, or “warm”. It’s not. It is served at cellar temperature, which is between 12-14C (53-57F). Room temperature is 21C (70F). That’s a big difference."

53°? I suppose I could deal with that.

Now back to our regularly scheduled Atlantic tug bashing!
