I built this little harbour tug a while ago but only got around to taking pictures the other day.

My plan is to build a bigger ship at minifig scale in future and this was mainly an exercise in building a hull. As a result there's not much detailling in the superstructure or on deck.
For the colours I've used the livery of Dutch company Smit. Their blue/yellow is very recognisable. It's not meant to be a scale model of a particular ship but it's based on Smit harbour tugs like this one:

I've got CDO. It's like OCD, but with the letters in alphabetical order. As they should be!

I think the only thing you are missing is a small radar on top, otherwise it looks really close to the picture.

Great job, adn you nailed the coloring.

I like the hull.
You did nice job in recreating the real thing with Lego.
Looking forward to the Minifig scale version!
