Title: Dutch Courage/ Partner tug
Post by: catengineman on December 11, 2008, 03:18:14 PM
Here is the very first look at my latest build.

You will have to wait for the rest as I do not intend (yer right) to start this build until after all the Christmas and New Year stuff is out of the way.
It is going to be hard (very hard) not to start while I am aboard the ship especially as I have the luvly jubbly big box in my cabin with me as I type this  :}

This is my first Slipways build, I have refitted, remodeled several others but this is to be totally mine, and WOW the scope is limitless.
Do I put the stern roller, the crane, do I change the rudders and the nozzles.. SO many choices my brain is going to hurt.

I will say that as an outset thought I would like a working stern roller, working winch and I have thought about lots of other additions all of which may or may not end up on this model.
I struggled to get 12 working channels on my Tito Neri and would hope I will keep the channel numbers down with this build. any way here is what my latest addition to my fleet looks like.
