HMCS Snowberry

Revell "Snowberry" with GLS brass upgrade kit

Here’s a non-R/C job– Revell’s “HMCS Snowberry” Flower-class corvette, being constructed for static display. The model is heavily upgraded with GLS’s brass photo-etch kit.

A work-in-process, follow along at my build thread on RC Groups.

Tugboat “Shannon”

Shannon's pilothouse

I like old tugs- you didn’t notice?

I had a chance to go aboard Gaelic Tugboat Co.’s “Shannon” the other day. Shannon is a converted YTB from WW2, and has a long history of commercial service here on the Great Lakes.

A few pictures are posted at RC Groups, where there are plenty of other tug nuts.
