Interesting, but not holding my breath. Billing announcements are often followed by a year or two before the actual release.

With that color paint on the pond ones boat would be hard to miss. Definately stands out. Easy to spot in low light conditions.

The "SuperTug" Fairmont Alpine will be available January 1 in the USA. It is a wooden hulled tug that utilizes basswood laser cut plywood in the build. The dimensions are:

1:75 scale
Length: 100cm
Height: 45 cm
Width: 24 cm

Thought I'd give folks an update as I have received so many inquiries about it.

Available at the BillingBoatsUSA website

If I did not already know about Fairmount, I would swear that somebody photoshoped that paint scheme. Regardless of the paint it is still a cool looking tug. I will be interested to see what the kit looks like too
