Well...it's totally believable! Very nice. Thanks for the info.
Pilothouse looks great, gap?...nothing a new coaming can't fix.

Lee,

Do what you want with the name but I like seeing it on there. Been yours for about 10 years now. Glad all is still running well. Someday, I am going to do a bronc in 1/6 scale. That will be awesome....

Got some paint on the cabin and deck after I got the coaming in. Also added the exhaust, LED lighting and some weld lines. Cabin is really bright and orange in the photos but the wash and weathering should tone it down like the large tug.

Very cool, the recessed lights add a nice touch...

But who's that poser in the wheelhouse...?

He is the permanent attraction. Shelby is for model setup.

Got the structure weathered and added my fake towboat company logo. Driver is fastened, built the engine lever and wheel. Electronics are also done so she is ready for the water. I will add small details as we go. It's now time to add the logos to my big tug and tractor trailer.
Not bad for a 7 day build.....

I have seen lots of Tamiya rigs in photos and have never seen one weathered before. Great job, looks awesome.

Thanks. It was really hard not to overdo the weathering on the semi. If it were an older model, that would be a different story.

Gee Darrin you could have given the boat a new paint job for the photos.
Looks kind of weathered and dingy!,

Great job. Dave.
