Hi
Construction tug Monaco III was practically completed. Photos are from a test cruise with a tow Polymorph. The second tugboat in the photographs is Sysifos.

Nice work!

Did you build the hull and work up from there? Perhaps I missed that in the posts.

At the beginning I only had a few photos.
According to the pictures I drew a plan of the hull and superstructure.
Hull shell tug is of laminate and built it for me colleague modeler.
The rest of the building I conducted myself.
