Challenge 4 - a small river tow

Being on the road again for work, I packed a few supplies and got started. This is going to be a small river tow boat of the type working tows around the Port of Baton Rouge after they have come down river with larger push boats. I basing the hull on a Lindberg kit that I think is around 1/200 since the kit walls for the super structure are only 5 scale feet high. First action is to use the second deck plate to fill that hole in the hull and then start a superstructure. I have some proto pics I’ll post tomorrow that are inspiration.
