Greg,
That is a Scale Shipyard hull with RSW detail parts.
It is a low power motor too.
The shape of that Alfa hull is very sleek! BD.

....the big white thing in the upper left?

Looks like a tug boat hull.

Did I get it right, BD?

Nope!!! AAAATTTTTT!!!!!! :shock:
It is an open launch style live steam boat.
Live steam is my second passion. 8)

Here is the second installment in my Alfa tail.
I am getting closer with the trim but this time she was a bit bow heavy.
This little Alfa hull runs sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It handles BEE-U-TIFF-LEE!!! :mrgreen: BD.

BD,

Can we fit that neat little system of yours in Erich's 1/72nd Beluga?....I have one of those hulls sitting on my desk. It needs attention!
