tiny tugboat part 2
I cut a heap of Origon to plank the boat and it needed steaming to get the shape. I thought that custom wood would take the bending with out steaming so I gave it a try. It works like a dream and here is the result of about 3 hours work. This is going to be a plug for the tug. The top photo shows the bow section with the planks on it.
This photo shows the stern note the craft wood has had fingers cut to ease it into the curves.
This shows a block screwed into the back to give it some strength.This shows some of the Origon planks used to support the sides from the inside.
