Default My Atlantic Tug has suffered major damage!

Well guys, the Atlantic had its first major accident. It wasn't even a maritime accident, either. The 33 inch vessel was sitting on its stand when one of my cats decided it was time to run across the stand I keep it on. As she ran across the boat, she knocked it off of the stand straight on the floor. I left all the peices as they were and moved the whole mess into another room for photos. Now it is time to repair her.

tugboater,
Time to fix it? Probably just slightly longer than the time it'll take to catch, and BB-Q that cat!

Did the hull survive intact?

If so, this won't be so hard to fix. It looks as if some plastic parts broke off and snapped loose.

Glue the pilot house back together and then see if it needs painting anywhere. They are basic colors black, green and white. Easy to match.

CA glue, paint and lots of patience will have you back in no time.
