Hi all, just bought this lovely little tug.

Anyone know what kit this was please? I like to find out a bit of the history of the kit, I already know it's full size history but can't find anything about this model be it a kit or scratch built.

Thanks

Roger

Hi Neil, I have been able to find out that Kingston Mouldings made a hull and had plans for this tug, they are still available through Models By Design and Loyalhanna Dockyard. Exactly where this model came from is still unknown as I would need to compare photos against my model to confirm it was a semi/kit.

There are plans in British Steam Tugs by P.N. Thomas and I have located a copy and await it's docking in my harbour. smiley

Regards

Roger

Hi Ash,

Yes, lucky to find one at reasonable cost and only the other end of the county at Hay-on-Wye, I could float home from there laugh

Regards

Roger

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
