HI Dave, wow awesome build that diorama on the Harbour tugs, I like the way you  modelled the dust affect, sad ending, probably a common place where the tubs end there working life.

What is the idea of the angle decks, be hard to walk up especially in rough weather, did those tubs assist large ships coming into port or mainly used or barge duties around harbour, I have seen in HO scale harbour.

What is your next project or still on going.

The doors on the cabin measure 5' 7"

Doors on ships are smaller than house doors. They have a high bottom edge (someone with proper nautical knowledge please insert proper nautical term), but if you measure from the top down to the deck should be something around 6' something. The painted figure seems to be about right for the ship.

Hi Jose, looks like yet another project in the near future after my Ro, Ro ship build escorting my ship out into the open ocean or Pilot boat .

Keep an eye out on my Camdale post, fingers crossed trains running end of  June early July. depends on how cold our winter days get with the wind s as well..

did one of those tug boats decades ago. Scale listed on the box was 1/96, so I raised the decks just a little and called it a day.
