    That's great! Thanks for the plans. Are you using 'body putty' on the side???

    This looks like the perfect project for one of the grandsons.

          Terry, your the first one I have noticed on this site that uses a scroll saw for model building.

          Model building is mostly why I owned a scroll saw until a year of so ago when I started dabbling with craft woodworking. I used to use my scroll saw almost exclusively for RC model airplane building. I seldom scratch build planes today. I still repair crash damage using the scroll saw to cut the various pieces being replaced though.

            Back in the early seventies I got my first Dremel scroll saw, Won it .
            I used it exclusively for building rc planes. Then about 10 years ago the dremel just was a piece of junk so I up graded to my current craftsman.
            I use it for everything. Great tool!
            No more planes though. My current Scroll saw projects seem to last a lot longer.

            It's all fun

              And I thought I was being bad using my saw for model skiffs.Your tug looks great.I use my saw with a fence a lot cutting the sides,ribs,seats,stern and about the whole model.The wood I use is thin and I get a cleaner cut with the scroll saw.

                My first scroll was a Dremel also. Only mine was a Christmas present when I was 10 years old. I had that saw for over forty years. It sat unused for years at a time though. I used that first saw for modeling way back then as I use my current scroll saw today.

                    He did the Baltimore run in October and finished in a little over 10 minutes. Of course it’s a very hilly course here and flat in San Antonio. Very proud of all of them.
