    Hello all,

    After more than 14 hours total build time ,this model is done. The tiers are a little oversized and the tug is much to be desired. But from three feet away ,who could tell anyway.

    Heck if I've done anything....I've saved $85.00 without having to buy CMR tug.Still gonna buy that kit as soon as the moneys right.

    Below are the pictures you requested Shaygetz.





    Hope you folks enjoy the photos......

    Now why didn't I think of that........duh on me LOL. If I named it after my wife,she would just shrug her shoulders and say {thats nice}.So I think I'll name her "Bettie Paige" after the 50's pin up chick.

    That's great Patrick! Nice modeling. Coincidentally my wife said "that's nice" or words to that effect when I dubbed my scratch built towboat the "Susan J". Hmmmm, wonder what she'd have said about a pin-up inspired name? :) Looking forward to a shot of "Bettie" at work!
