    Prosit Louis,

    Brilliant work Habib. Now we want to see the paddle steamer tug.

    Note that the paddle steamer tug is longer than the one you have made.

    Ejja Master, lets have the diorama ready for the show.

    Cheers.

    Lou

    I think you should contact our dear friend Mr Liam Gauci, curator of Maritime Museum, surely in their archives they have plans/fotos of these interesting gems? He'll be more then happy to help ...

    That what friends and clubmates are for, prosit David, excellent co-operation!

    Next in-line should be id-dghajes tal-pass Nan, I recommend you go down to Cottonera waterfront and get some references and colours used, as that area they are specific in colour coding [reflects the city they are from, reds for Birgu, Red/Yellow for Isla, Light Blue n White Cospicua and Green Kalkara ... nowadays you see this used for regatta perpose] : )

    There are agood number that are solid colours Nan, saves you time : )

    Have a look here http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles/view/20070930/letters/i-id-dghajsa-i-tal-pass.3542

    http://vittoriosaregattaclub.webs.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=6114751

    What you need to keep in mind is the way how these are rowed normally standing up, like a Veneitian gondolier ...

    You are truly awesome nan. How do you manage to put in all that minute detail? If it weren't for the EWRU, i would have imagined it to be at least 4 or 5 times that size. The level of detail is amazing. Very kbir int nan!!!
