G-Tug launch

Well she floats!! I think if I build another I would use a smaller servo for power. I think this one uses a 360 or 370 motor, and as you can see in the video she floats level at rest but has a slight starboard list as the motors torque takes hold. all in all it was quite a learning experience. Now to add towing bitts and a pilothouse ladder.

Gorgeous model. Did you put any ballast inside? Maybe that would help it resist the listing.

Cool model, looks like a great armchair ride, just sit on the chair and tool around having fun.

Great job!

Yes I did add some balast to level her at rest. After seeing how easy she rolls I'm glad I used 0.10 plastic sheet for the deckhouse.
