My wood order came in a day or two ago so I traced out the wheelhouse parts and cut them.

Nice present in the mail today. Motor, stuffing box, coupler, prop and a anchor.
Once the wheelhouse was sanded I fit that to the deck.
My next thought was once the deck is attached the wheelhouse will be glued on. My plan right now is to have the engine room covers removable held on with earth magnets. This will give me access to the battery, ESC and receiver.
Like all good ideas, that may change as the build progresses.

There are another couple of Klimek's over in the Working vessels section   "re Klimek tug build, dated Oct 08 2012. I put the Freeship plans into the thread. Mine is planked with steamed Pine strips. I didn't have the correct colour scheme and used a pen for the doors etc. Stand off scale!! Works well and looks the part, that's the main thing.
Yours is looking really good.

For the rubbing rail on my latest model I used wooden dowel, I stuck it to the workbench with double sided tape and then planed it to the size I wanted.
