Most impressive John, some nice small finishing details really do make a difference don't they  :o

  Yes, the details do make the difference. One expends a lot of time to do them for the size of the part, but the results are worth it.

  I took a leaf from Voyager's book and added some weathering to the Neddy. I wanted it to look in well maintained, but used condition. The weathering was, therefore, work a day dirt and grime rather extensive rust and ready for the next paint.

Kno3 requested more closeups, to that end I offer the following. The problem with close ups is, they show all the faults, so don't look too closely.

Thanks! In some of the pictures it's hard to tell if I'm looking at a model or the real ship  :-)) :-))

 Thanks very much Tony. I'm glad you enjoyed the build. I was happy the way the redesign of the original Billings concept worked out.

cheers

Hi.
I'm new to this forum but i have now read this thread a couple of time this past week and it's a beauty you have build there  :-))
I have build a couple of tug boats my self earlier, before i totally dedicated my life to scale airplanes from WWII era.
I my self have also build Smit Nederland, but only after the manual and plans being supplied whit the kit. My first tug was Billing Boats Banckert, a nice kit and and it really get me hooked up on tug boats. I have always run my models only whit throttle (speed control) and rudder steering. Newer put sound modules or have had operating winches, cranes etc on my ships.

But now i had to come to my point. This is one of the most beautiful buildings of the Nederland i ever have seen. You really inspired me to start build boats instead of airplanes again  :o
So now i have started look around for something really nice to build, and probably it will be one of Model Slipways tug boats  ok2

Crazy man this Oldiron, talking about faults showing on the closeups cause there are none! Honestly, I thought this was a mix of pictures of your model and the original until I saw the background! Fantastic!
