1/48 Fleet Tug in MS 32 camo

Hello everyone,
I'm new to the forum, and had to join after noticing how much time I've been spending here as a "visitor"! Below is my 1/48 scale Navy ATF, USS Chawasha, painted in Measure 32 camo as she would have appeared in early 1945. Built using a Scale Shipyard hull, it has a lighted interior, including inside the cargo hatches. Builder's blueprints came from National Archives, which were a huge help. Still got some detailing to do, but it's been on the local pond a couple times and does great. I just wish there were some clubs in New Hampshire!

Handsome tug there, Mariner! I like those 'dazzle' paint schemes!

Welcome mariner02, what a beautiful build! She looks proud.
I was wondering what running gear she sports?

Thanks so much guys. With no clubs around, you're the only feedback to be had! (and my wife gets a little tired of "hey honey- come see how this turned out!"

Running gear is a 12-volt Graupner motor using a ProBoat ESC and 76mm Radestock prop.
