It has working running lights, radar, home made smoke unit and working water cannons. The model was built some years ago and took just over 12 months. The tug was re-named Celia after my long suffering wife!

HMS Daring

Roger served on a previous HMS Daring as Engine and Boiler personnel. This particular ship D05 was scrapped in 1972!

Mike Ingry Mike Ingry's tug Ulises

The Ulises is a 1:30 scale model of an ocean going steam tug, common in the 60's and 70's. Merchant ships crossing oceans was not without its risks: and ocean-going tugs was vitally important. Metal was the basic material used in boat building with a percentage of wood. Builders took advantage of the strength of steel for hulls with wood used for the crew areas. This makes models of singular beauty despite the fact that they were working boats. Ulises is an Occre Kit with fully planked frame hull, African walnut deck and planking. She is 830mm long and 180mm wide, with lights and smoke generator.
Pilot Boat

Keith Sharp Keith Sharp's Hustler

A 1/10 scale Hustler Hellcat 6 wheeler. Built in 2008 whilst convalescing after major brain surgery. Started life as a full roofed model but was later cut back to make a hellcat after it was found the roof wasn't on straight! Fully radio controlled. (Note: Keith drives a full size home built Hustler. )
Keith Sharp Keith Sharp's Huntsman

Original builder believed to be Vic Smeed, a model boatr draughtsman, and given to Keith by a work colleague in a sad state of repair. It is a 1/8 scale Fairey Huntsman. Keith says this is the latest and final colour scheme! Running on 2 x 14.8v lipo batteries to 2 brushless motors the model now represents the true scale speed of the full size boat! It doesn't leak any more due to Keith covering the original hull in a glass-fibre skin! This model motors on the water with big wake!
