WOW!!  I learned something new today. Every little bit helps! :glad::glad:
Watching Dave build his tugboats (and very well built), and then.......and then....... he shows this great idea about using a  keyhole saw  blade, too.

I am really impressed, Dave. :apl::apl::apl:Keep up the good work.

I got almost everything put together. I still need to do some details and add some kind of molding around the top of the windows in the wheel house. There's detail painting, some color and a few washes of black and rust here and there.

Dave, thanks so much for the additional info. The latest version is looking really nice, I guess the finishes worked, did the little stand come with the tug or is that something you cobbled together? I'll be checking out your other pics right after this. Thanks again, Pat

Your supplier sent you a perfectly good tug boat kit and just look at what you have done to it.

Great job.

The stand came with the kit. I glued it to a scrap piece of plexiglass because the stand kept falling over.

Thanks!

Thanks guys! I'm at a bit of a standstill until I can replace my air compressor. Hopefully I'll have one in the next day or 2.
