Fire-Fighting Tugboat

The April 2023 Secretary’s Challenge was to build any model appearing on page 15 of a Meccano set manual, so I chose model 8.6, the ‘tug or fire-fighting boat’, from the 1970s № 8 set.

I made some modifications to avoid bending parts where possible, such as re-working the lifeboat, and have added a few enhancements including a ladder to the wheelhouse roof, cleats and tyre fenders.
