Scratch Built Tug Boat
by Brian Matthews
This tug boat is not available in a kit. I scratch built it.
It’s 6 foot, 9 inches long and made of 1/8 inch thick plywood, balsa wood, bass wood, and Evergreen Styrene Plastic sheets. All of the cutting was done with an Xacto knife.
I don’t have a regular workbench as I’m a trucker who’s always on the road. At least it seems like I’m always on the road. The model was built in the cab of my 18-wheeler.
