Hi Dave,
I still have to finish the daughter boat of the SAR-boat "Adolph Bermpohl"  O0 ............and then I don't know. My wife is asking the question where to put all the models and I think she is right. Anyway, I like the big tugs and the "Yorkshireman" is still on the list.

Have a great day and a better one tomorrow.

I run a rescue centre for boats - I could adopt them and send you a little letter every month O0 {-)
...... and whenever I start agreeing with my wife I question my sanity .... that's ever since we both said 'I Do'

Hi Dave,
when my wife and I got married we made an agreement, she does all the minor decisions and I all the major ones. So far we haven't major ones. :} <*< (45 years and counting)

Hi,
I did epoxy the inside of the hull and it turned out pretty good. There is also some progress on the superstructure, the wheelhouse and the drivetrain. In the pictures you will noticed that I replaced a few wooden parts with styrene.

Regards
Wilhelm
Hi Wilhelm. I've just found this thread and must say it is a stunner, if it were mine I think I'd just sit staring at it with satisfaction for days on end at a time  :-))
Question
I could not help notice that you pictured your twin props installed for inboard rotation.
Was this just a random trial fit or intentional?
Regards Andy
