20mm WW2 Painted Operation Sealion German Fishing or Tug Boat.

Some invasion barges were not motorised and would need help crossing the channel, so fishing or tug boats and other craft were used, this boat is from Frontline Wargaming and should be the last of my fleet aspirations due to costs.

    A question, this looks like a military/navy Tug boat, did they have there own or did they use civilan Tug Boats?

  3. @Dalauppor: As far as I know they built some but requisitioned most and repainted them.

  6. Nice. It looks suitably worn and weather-beaten.

  7. Pretty. I love the suggestion of hidden depth a tabletop boat gives, of the hull underwater. It's the same with mineshafts.

  8. Masterful job! I'd unleash this monster in the bathtub and take out some rubber ducks.

  27. I do like all these boats and I'm sure those Spitfires will too.

  28. The distressed hull is well done and "fools the eye" into seeing old weathered and chipped paint. Truly a senior veteran vessel fit for the service of England.
