    Finished my 80's version of the Betty Ann. This Tug is now the Maverick Printed on a Ergo Mars, designed in Tinker Cad. Railing are styrene. Will go under the UP Bridge over the Snake River on the line to Lewiston.

    Very nice! How many pieces did you have to assemble for the bulk of the boat? (not including the fine detail parts) I've never done a boat before but I think that would make a fun project some day.

    It was assembled like a wedding cake. Print 1 was the hull. Print 2 the first deck superstructure. Print 3 the tower and 4 the pilot house. I was going to do printed railings but they are so fragile I went with styrene for durability. Other small pieces like the winches, life rings, and crew were printed separately. Was then detailed with some pieces out of my details box.
