Time for a bit of non-railway action. As most of projects involve assembling things, it's fun to do a bit of plasticard noodling as a break.
Our model boat club chairman's challenge this year calls for a working boat to be made from a standard hull. I arranged for the hulls from Sarik vaform and they are very nice. 33cm long and 13.5cm wide, although they look like a clinker built rowing boat, there are a lot of other possibilities.
I fancy a small working boat and years ago found this fantastic book for inspiration.
The plans are intended for people making full-size boats but that just means this is too much detail for modellers. The vessel that grabbed my attention was the 14' tug, Bullhead.
My hull isn't quite correct but I reckon I can produce something in this style. There will be loads of room for motor and RC gear. All I need is to finalise the design.
