I have to agree actually, the modelling there is superb. Lets hope I can do it some justice - even just a little bit!

Since were on the subject of Svitzer Tugs...
 
 What are the closest paint matches for their colours? OR what do "you" use?

Quick question on the Svitzer Maltby - regarding Towing...
 
 Are Shottles ok for Tug Towing? if so, what would you recommend, as I have never used shottles on a model before now.
If not - i'll put conventional Prop shafts in.  :-))

Never used shottles but they have good control but don't think they have enough power!! As Steve says 60/70mm korts and props and a bowthruster!!

Chipchase Built his own Schottel drives for the Maltby and they work a treat giving not only a powerful thrust but also the ability to turn in its own length.

I'm still terrified of shottles on a Tug that will be used for towing, when they have plastic gearing.
 
 Regards to the Eldergarth - What are "your" thoughts on me re-painting and doing her as the Rowan when she served the Tees and Tyne?
I think i'm quite likely to do this, just wondered what you all thought.
