Finished!!!!


I've finished this tug. And I think she looks pretty good
The only part bought were the two propellers and some very small valve wheels.
100% scratchbuilt otherwise.

Went back and looked over the build again. I love the overhead in the main cabin. Excellent work Jerome.

Great Looking Tug


Jerome

Great looking, Looks real. Are you still thinking about making a Mold for the hull and making some hulls - Really would be intrested in one, would be my first modern US tug Model. Looks like you got to walk the boat, on the starboard aft deck gaurded by yellow railing what is that.

Happiness and have a great Thanksgiving,
Rich

Thanks everyone, I kind of like it to. Even after all the time in front of the thing.
Rich, That a raised man hole with a pipe railing guard around it, painted yellow.
And yes I will be getting a mold made.
Probably be after the first of the year.
