Esvagt Caroline
« on: October 29, 2016, 10:11:06 PM »

     Hi all its been a while since I have done any modeling due to other interests, in fact if my memory serves me well it was back in 2012 that I did any modeling.
I started building the Caroline back in 2010 she is a C class rescue vessel but she was put on hold while I finished my Svitzer Maltby.
To be honest I was thinking of selling her a while ago as an unfinished project but after getting her out of the loft I thought how can you put a price on all of the hours I had spent getting her to the stage that she is, so I have decided to give her another go.
She has a homemade bow thruster and main drive system, if anyone is interested I could post photos showing how I got her up to her present stage.
