Looks great.  But boy, you have some funny looking tugs in NZ.

At just 16+ m full size, and 1:50 scale, your TIKA must be just a little over 13 inches in length.  And some time ago you thought my TENACIOUS tug might be too small at 1:50 scale, even though it is twice the length (8x overall size) as your TIKA.

So, what's the next one on the ways?

Des.

What are you talking about NZ tugs are the most beautiful in the whole world!!

Yes, it is small. Too small for RC, it would only be able to handle the smoothest of conditions. I do have a small tug about this size with RC and it bobs about so much that it looks ridiculous when it's on the water even when ballasted to the max.

No project on the go next. I have a long wishlist but nothing decided. Still need to do the finishing touches to the Hikurangi now that's a good looking tug.
