    If it looks right it probably is.

    Thanks Martin. I called the owner today, and he said the original plan was to have a sliding door on the wheel house sliding aft. It would have a rectangle window in it too. I will put these on the wheel house shown closed, as the wheel house floor on the model is partially open for the battery. A pilot wheel is to be installed and a skipper.

    Hi Ron,
    She is really starting to look like the photos of the real thing.
    Well done.

    Looking good Ron - suggest you try to find the metal (aluminum?) clamps (like the blue ones) - seem to be better made and much stronger than the plastic ones. Make sure you get the ones with the big foot though - the thin ones tend to dent the material. Definitely last much longer than plastic . Been using mine for over 10 years now - unfortunately on commercial jobs too! Does interfere with ones hobby time.........

    Never enough clamps. Those alligator type loose their strength after a year. And the blue ones loose the swivel foot. Time to find a sale.

    Will add some ballast over the keel area & under motor, around universal, stuffing box. Just to keep it from rocking when under power.

    I used tapered balsa to get a slanted deck. The sub deck will strengthen the model before the basswood decking. This tugboat has a steel plated deck.
