Here is where I am at in the finish of the vessel. I have added numerous detail items that are relative to tugboat work. I am debating whether I should install a radar antenna. Remember post war vessel. Maybe we could buy a government surplus radar. Got to do some research here. There was direction finders, compass, and AM radios. There was plenty of life rafts available. The International Navigation lighting and towing system rules came later in 1960 and again in 1972 revisions.
I have added more than what would come with this kit to give it a good working appearance as a model. Here are some things I included.
The bow hull names,stern board name, revised tow and stern lights, mast stays,working stern,bow on hooks and lashed, tow alongside straps, rope hauser on deck in addition to the wire hauser,stern hauser rub rail,water tank vents, fuel vents, rope fenders, real bow fender, Stern bump fender, and even a garbage can. Her are some pictures from all angles.
(They do sell some that actually fly too!)
