Early morning Ken, heaps better than what you were copping well below minus, we had the hottest day in years peaked 43 degrees in the sun and 40 in under the pergola, it hit when you walked out the door, got back in as quick as possible, warm night as well 26 degrees and same again tomorrow.

Wow I thought of modelling a train ferry what one, like your friend got hooked on the Ro Ro ship I am modelling mainly because she can take containers as well.

What scale is he modelling, if I am thinking of the ship you said lake Ontario say a ship like it f a blokes layout modelled on the great lakes, will do some research.

I am now ready to start building the ship , pics to follow,see how much cardboard I have, the two front sections be the hardest to build with the shape of the bow, first model is a test bed .

Once I do start, going to send the the guy some progress pics  I got the plans from to remind him send me more ship drawing and ask him on the full height of the ship only have the hull height.

What happened to your freighter ,  0 scale tug is she a pusher tug or one that ties up on the side of a barge.

Hate this time of the year, can't work outside for long, shirt is wet with sweat, start early till it gets too hot and late afternoon, stays daylight till around 7pm in summer,  can't do make any noise after that time, only wiring .

Way! to hot for me, I can at least dress for the COLD!.
Warming up for a week or so, can start wearing lighter cloth's.

He models in HO, getting to old for modelling in HO.

My tug, which started life as as "LIONEL" East Coast US tug, is getting modified to closer resemble the Canadian Pacific lake tug Granthall. Built in 1928, operated on Kootenay Lake in BC. Don't plan to lengthen it, but need to cut back the cabin section square the Port holes and start to re add bit's and pieces closer to the Granthall. Have a cut away drawing of the Tug Master which is one of the last steam tug's on the West Coast of Canada, so I may take a crack at modelling the Triple Expansion Engine room, that can be viewed through the skylight windows.

When towing the tug would either tie up along side or with two barges, the bow's of the barges would be tied together and the tug would push between the two up the lake.

Out to enjoy the mild weather while it lasts.

Afternoon Ken, the only problem dressing up for the cold, how could you work in all that, be hard to do any heavy work.

The same again today, didn't get out of bed till 7.30am opened the door could feel the heat hit your face, too hot to have a morning coffee 32 degrees in the sun 30 in under the pergola, aircon is now on.
Steam tug, Brisbane still has a work steam tug, at the ship museum, ill get some info for you and pics, nice to have a cutout drawing of what you want to model saves having to guess, look forward to see some pics.

Is there any chance of getting some pics of your mates ships, HO scale will be quite large like my ship, starting the construction today, may start a new post, the ship be finished by the time the layout is up and running mid year. Won't  be able to get stuck into the layout till mid March.

Does anyone know any thing about lap tops, I found out just before my son passed away when he was going through the lap top and discovered the the HD was split only has a Solid State 256, C drive no more space where the windows is can't do any more updates.The question is can the partition be taken out or cheapest option is can you change the updates to go into the other side.

May not be able to upgrade to a much bigger drive,  I have cleaned out the pics in that drive and will do the same for the second drive and use my sons computer is what I plan to do. 

Does Canada play cricket, what is their main sport.
