Hello

it takes 2 years to build the Rotortug "Geeste" 1:70.

The hull is fiberglass and the most other parts are polystyrene, very small parts are made by echting.

Very detailed model - nice work!
What seals the deck to the hull - interested in how you did that.
Thanks for posting

I use a very soft rubber sealing (2mm) and a acrylic glass plate, pressed with screws.
Same use in model submarines.

The Deck lies on this acrylic plate.

Brilliant, keep them coming.
Your wiring on the mast is excellent and the amount of detail is  fantastic. Did you have access to the real boat?

I am allowed to visit the boat and I took 500 photos.
Without the photos it is not possible to make these details.

Perhaps you could show us your other boats as well. The more photos the better. They are very inspiring.

For sure Gabi, it is amazing to look over your tug and see that it looks better
than the real one. I easily walk about her decks as I take in the detail.

Thank you again for sharing your talent here on the Forum
