Tugboat
« on: January 11, 2016, 12:15:17 »
As I always wanted to build, here is my old style tugboat for Playmobil.

It started like this: saw a hull from an ugly Disney Peter Pan pirate boat and a horse trailer from Sleich. The hull seemed very appropiate for this kind of ship, after it was naked from masts, etc. The trailer was a happy concidence.

This is the making of, beginning from a very early mockup to a completed ship.

Hope you all like it!

If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

Wow. Can't wait to see the end result.

Do you have a pic of the "original Peter Pan" boat?
