Hi All
 Still here and job hunting, more bit cut plus motors, korts, and couplings all there waiting on the local shop to get 1 more shaft, and a pair of props (over 6 weeks!!!) quicker from H.K. but they both do much scale stuff. More updates to follow

Hi Timo,

looking good!

am building the same tug but with 50mm steerable korts and a pair of Graupner 720BB Torque motors had the first water test of the bare essentials on Wednesday.

will name her Diablo II as it seems to be the sister tug to Chame II.

Here are some photos
