Foundation Franklin

foundfran2

My next big project is underway– the famous salvage tug “Foundation Franklin”. And it is a big project- five feet long and about 70 pounds. FF was a WW1 “Dainty Class” tug in His Majesty’s service. Converted to commercial salvage work, she performed years of heroic North Atlantic work for Foundation Marine out of Halifax. You can read her story in Farley Mowat’s “Grey Seas Under”. And you can follow my build at RC Groups.
