Are the schottels made by you? They look very nicely put together, as does the rest of the boat.  Nice build.

hello SailorGreg ,


       I didn't made the schottles myself , I bought them from bauer-modelle . I did made in brass the upper part of schottles and the part through the hull  . I did made the mechanical part with the gear completely.

Yes, I meant the parts inside and penetrating the hull.  They seem to me to be the complicated bits of schottels, the actual nozzles are relatively straightforward.  Well done!  :-))
