Thanks but the majority of the credit goes to the manufacturer, Sievers in Germany

http://www.modellbau-sievers.de/Start/links.html

Less than $400.00 delivered, came with all this cool stuff. all small parts were CNC made and fit together easily.

Even the prop shaft holes in the hull were already drilled and aluminum liners imbedded, ready to accept the stuffing tubes.

Build a model.


The EU exchange rate is very good right now, a smart time to take advantage of any kit from that area ...

A well engineered kit.

The only drawback on the kit was that it was produced for a Tug with no push knee and Bruiser has one.

Had to scratch make the knee, and as mentioned Umi saved the day by creating Perfect scale ribbed bumper material.

Team effort


Thanks Robert ~

Special thanks to Ed C. for the scratch made prop retaining nuts, he made them on his lathe with only a few rough numbers to go by.

This made a well Engineered kit become even more accurate.
