Nice one, Mike. It almost looks like it is computer generated.

That Moran tug looks like an Evers painting.

 ^-^ Hi Mike thanks for the picture, the model is of the Thames tug Vanquishe at 1/32nd scale  and the ship is our club towboat 16ft long the tanker also has her own motor and radio controll on the lake at Bluewater shopping centre Greenhithe Kent England.
the model is based on the tug Vanquisher built in1955 for the Elliot steam tug Co ltd london, she was the most powerful tug on the River Thames at the time, and was a complete change to anything previously seen on the river, the skipper even had his own bath in his bathroom. she was powered by a 1250Hp 8 cyl two stroke direct reversing engine,
Both models were built by me .    Geo

I saw this one earlier and I believe its a modified (heavily!) model of the Carol Moran that I just completed, unless its scratch built. Either way its really neat.
