It took me about 100 hours to complete the wheelhouse. There are some photos of my Ayton Cross, in modern tugs under the heading model tug Ayton Cross. You may find them of use. Yours is looking good.

This is a model of the Ormesby Cross sister of the Ayton Cross I built her in 2007,she makes into a very powerful tug.

Hi Tug.O.W. I should build her as twin screw, as is the full size tug. The korts are 70 mm steeable korts from MMM, the props are 65 MM four blade kort props, from the Prop Shop. This works out pretty much to scale. I used a motor mixer from Action electronics, and a 32 MM Marx Luder bow thruster.The motors are car heater type, also from MMM. She is very powerfull,  agile, and a pleasure to sail. Bryan at MMM, is always very helpfull, and will advise you on running gear.
