Push tug

After taking a bit of ribbing about not having a Springer tug I decided to go a head.
WELL after some research I decided not on a Springer but a small push tug.
25 ft twin engine. So a 1/12 scale is in order. I contacted the company that makes this tug and found that they will modify it any way you want it.
The thing I found most interesting is the throttle set up. With fore and aft rudders they use twist throttles on the rudder tillers.
The construction started on the June 22 I started the drawings. June 30th I built the pilot house and cabin, Saturday July 3I did the hull. Now I have too wait for my drive shafts, as I did not have any in stock.
The woman I spoke too was very helpful, but Evey time I asked if this could be added to the tug she said "we have already done that"
Above deck is all Styren and the hull is all 1/8 lite-ply.
