Superstructure work. I usually build small stuff like this with "for sale" signs. Different signs have different thicknesses. For sale, beware of dog etc, lol. Jerome's plans are great, I didn't expect so much help. Wow life is easy. Its still a tricky superstructure to fab. Did I mention this tugboat is particularly beautiful? really a nice looking boat.

By no means done, tons of detail left to do. But a good time for a picture break.

I think the funnel looks small... I will probably re build it.

Its all your fault!! I, Silenthunter, blindly and in good faith built what you had drawn to the best of my ability.

I already have a new one in the oven. Much better.

Must have drawn that stack while under the influence of a dead line.
Or just thought ...I'll change it later...what does it matter......Who would ever want to build another one of these.

I hear you Jerome, I do the same. Actually a lot less. Ha. Your templates were blessing, saved a LOT of layout work.

Some picts. I'm smitten with this tug

I still dont have the funnel exactly how I want it... its removable so no biggie.
