Those last ones are still upside down for me. Try these.

This is an odd problem. When I downloaded those files onto my computer they opened the right way up despite being upside down on the forum. I cropped them a little and then saved them but rather than replacing the jpg, which is what normally happens, it saved them as another jpg with the same name which is normally impossible. Are there two types of jpg?

Nice Springer by the way!

Looking good. I must find a blind - it seems to feature in so many models and if Balsa is getting hard to buy then.......

Do you make your hulls taller than standard or is it an optical illusion?

My recently finished pusher tug, number two for me. This one has a full sound system, the speaker is in the packing crate behind the cabin. The sound system includes 11 sounds from a simple horn to the full Popeye theme for the captain. The Popeye figure is 3D printed as is the cabin. Latest addition is a FPV camera in a rope locker at the front of the raised deck area, looking between the rams, making boat recover a lot easier.

Forgot to mention, this new pusher has a shaped rudder, that was 3D printed. It was inspired by the rudder on my Model Slipway Conserver and works incredibly well. With a little over 50 degrees throw each way I can turn the pusher in its own length......just about.

Just for future information, do you use the FPV camera with a screen or goggles?

T the moment I am using a small 4.1 inch screen and only use it when recovering another persons boat. The plan is to make it rotate and use a set of goggles with an accelerometer to have it pan and tilt.

Have you noticed the enormous Kort Nozzle hung under that tug? I have processed the photo to make it more obvious.

If you can ignore the steel girder stand the whole of the underneath of the main hull is enormous relative to the rest.

Do we know any more about this boat?

Having looked at the video again I am very surprised at the speed the tug leaves & enters the harbour past the moored boats & the amount of wash it creates as a result. I don't think that it is good seamnaship.

I said the same thing when I first saw the video. "Hey, No Wake Zone..."
