Italian WWI dredging tug

Hello gentelmans,
I know (and i appologize for that) i haven't write on the forum for some time now, but this evening i have decided to re-start an old thread -http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1289419&highlight=rimorchiatore-
but unfortunately i couldn't do that because is more than 460 days old.
Anyway, the tug that i have presented in that thread is now completly finished and with one silver-medal at worldchampionship C2 class.

I hope you will enjoy the pictures and i would be glad to hear some oppinions.
Thank you and best regards
George from Romania

Thank you for you reply my friends, i'm very happy you like the RD-10, about the skills....let's say only that i'm trying to do my best in every model.
Pat-that's the face i'm having when i'm looking to your builds also
About the winch on the after deck- it was used for towing the dredging instalations and it is not a kit, i have build it using the original plans, it was one of the hardest job on this tug.

Best regards
George

Wow !

Beautiful Boat !
Great Work !
After seeing this model it places a new meaning of "building skills on a scale of 1 to 10" .....
