Posted (edited)

Dear Friends,

I build this commissioned model for the Tug owner Fairplay in Hamburg (Germany) in 150 hour and just above 12500 parts and is 60 cm long x 28 cm wide and 56 cm high.

Many thanks for the great reactions at the WIP stage and i hope you like the progress how to build.

I have great fun to build her and their are so many SNOT techniques that 85% is build side ways, also create all the details and lighting at such small space, was great to do.

Best regards,

Edwin

Thank you @jim7564 and glad that you can learn ore to study, about the WIP stages of my builds.

Your style is complete different and i must change everytime the style, techniques and scale, what my clients wanted, for their model and what is possible for the budget.:wink:

This is some increadible quality from the build itself to the stickers, lighting and tubing. Are you a certified professional, and if not, have you considered becoming one in order to make it easier to help those who inadvertently want to purchase copies?

Thanks @Lasse D for your great comment and compliment. For your question if i am a certified professional i can answer short, No I am not.

I have considered it, but all the restrictions give me the upper, before the benefits.

Maybe i can make more profit out of my work when i will be as certified professional, but i prefer to be complete independent, what and for, i wanted to work for with no restrictions.

You do not hear me complaining and are already fully booked until the end of the year.:blush::wink::sweet:

Found this one trough the frontpage, and I have to say Edwin you did another marvellous job on creating a very detailed and true to orignall Lego model of a real ship. Tug boats are always interesting, they are relatively small with a lot going on on deck. I love the lighting you did, it really gives a good impression of how the flood lights of a ship work.

Hi Edwin,

I love the level of details of your models :thumbup: Your customers must be very proud!

Will you build bigger tugboats, I mean, those towing oil platforms for example? I saw the ALP Defender (or Striker) on YT earlier and think it is awesome:

Thanks Bart for your great comment and the smaller harbour tugs are more difficult to build than the bigger offshore tugs.

Details are the most important thing on a tug and thank you for the nice words.

I have build in the past big offshore tugs, but the ALP Striker is not from me, but a digital design from Konajra and know that he have no interest to build her in real.:wink:
