I could look at that all day, but I don't like being all bent over to see them. LOL!  Nice BIG tug, must be 6' long.

Hi T.A.N  Now you make me wonder what I have done (or even how) to my computer set up, for if I left click on the pics not only do they enlarge but they are the right way up ???

Hello Alexd,

Super nice for sure. I build in 1/16 scale and so I am glad to see that tugboaters
like you make them even larger than my builds. And, I can only hope to aspire
to the fine workmanship you have created.

Thank you for sharing Alexd,
Michael
