Smit Rotterdam Completed!!!

Hello! Had made a tremendous effort to make this tug completed since almost 2 years has passed by during building this one.

Anyway, I metioned completed, but I discover that I should fit light in the superstructure main deck as well.

Be nice now. This is my first scaleboat. So I hope this tug will do.

Sorry for all those picīs but my idea is that picīs say more than words!

She is simply spectacular!! Attention to all the detail is very impressive. The lighting is really very nice.

A wonderful job. Two years well spent.

How is she on the water?

Absolutely awesome

lol.... It may be your first boat but certainly not your first model. I looked at your gallery. It is quite clear you are a Master at modelling and it shows on this Smit!!

Fantastic job!!

Very nicely done, like the weathering job. I like fact that you used light bulbs in the right places, gives it a more true to scale look.

Fantastic doesn't cover it. Put a bit of photoshop water and reflections on the night-time shots and no-one would know it wasn't real.

Thanx guys for all fine coments.

bluesy: I have not opportunity to tryed her out in "real water" yet but she goes fine in the bathub.

wingnut163: No, the cranes are no opperational. Just static and movable by hand for easyer acces in hull etc.

I dont know witch my next scaleboat will be, but I had plans for scratch building next time.
