Nice one, Larry, very nice! I like especially the weathering - makes the tug look authentic.

As for the blinds - which ones are you using?
I could find only Lupin (http://www.ikea.com/de/de/catalog/products/20117513 (http://www.ikea.com/de/de/catalog/products/20117513)) and Lindmon (http://www.ikea.com/de/de/catalog/products/40084347 (http://www.ikea.com/de/de/catalog/products/40084347)) but I'm not sure about the thickness of the battens - maybe that's just because I've been looking on the German Ikea page.
