Tug-Barge project delivered

Recommended Posts

Admin, If you find this topic to be in the wrong area please move it to correct one.


Last Monday and Tuesday, Mr. Kershner and I plus two others (who couldn't attend) was invited for the christening of the Tug and Barge we have designed and built for Tongue Point Job Corps in Astoria, OR.

During the afternoon of Monday Mr. Kershner and I worked to finalize the light features on the tug. 
Tuesday was a special day as another part of their program provided us with two pedestals, this to have the tug and barge movable.
At Uniform 1545 (3.45pm) it was time for a very special part of the day, two students graduating from their maritime program plus the revealing of the tug and barge along with the christening.

The foul weather didn't discourage us from having the event outdoors.

For the efforts the design and build team was given a Challenge coin by the schools' Captain Len Tumbarello

It was a special warm feeling to hand the two models over the school as we know they are to be used for educational purposes.

The barge hull was made out of plywood and frames.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
