Is the Finland the same class of tug as the Nederland?
Is it a Billings kit or scratch built?
I see the "Becker" rudders there on your model and the Korts; they look similar to the Nederland.
The deck and bulwarks appear to be "cast"  is that so?

Bulwark and hull is moulded fiberglass part, I purchased from my friend. Deck is fiberglass. Rudders and Kort nozzles are original purchased from Billing boats. Rest of the tug I will make just from plans, everything will be fiberglass, no any plywood parts.I will send here pictures, step by step

No, this is not model from kit, it is all scratch, I using rudders and Kort nozzles from Billings. Smit Finland is from one line of tugs as Nederland
