I got a start on the tug last weekend. I've made up the stand using the supplied templets. Quite robust! The hull is sanded down to the scribbed line and the deck suports are on. I used a mix of evercoat polyester resin and west system filler powder. Makes into a nice paste. The hull plateform is made up (1/8 luan ply ) and installed. I'm going to be using a Mack Products 4 to 1 gearbox and a graupner 700 size torque motor. I made up a stuffing tube and have laid out motor and gearbox supports. I really like the size of this model 42 inches x 12. I'm going to reinforce under the deck for towing should be fun! more in a bit, Harry
