Nanaimo show photos

The Nanaimo show was a success - over 60 boats on display. Glen has posted a number of photos on the TugForum site - you need to sign in to see the photos I think -


The small Voith tug is a work of art - 12 inches long - the drive units and the winch fully working.

From the Bridge

Hi Everyone, we hope you will frequent the Victoria Model Ships blog on a regular basis.

April has arrived, we have shifted the clock forward and we can look forward to better weather.
Start cleaning off the dust, check the old batteries to see if they survived the winter and head to a
pond or lake.

Here are a several photo's to get us inspired to get out to the pond or lake
