The latest addition Soerabaja Harbour is this steam tugboat from HLBS. They’ve got quite a good range of boats and ships, mostly military, and this one is perfect for my little harbour.
It’s made of six pieces of resin and everything fits well.
|A 28mm figure to get a feeling for the size. It is unfortunately a bit cramped for based figures.|
I looked at photos of older tugs and found this paint-scheme – black, red and yellow - that I quite like.
I weathered the boat heavily as it is, in my mind, having a hard time in the Dutch East Indies colony. Where ships go to slowly die of neglect.
A fun piece to paint.
