Due to shutdown and a 'non-availability' of certain items, I decided to dust off a hull and semi kit that I bought from Mobile Marine Models. It is called Euro-Girl
Designed as a Multi-Task, Multi-purpose unit, this rather 'short' tug, a little under 80 feet / 24 metres l.o.a, is the pinnacle of brute-force & intelligence. Conventional stern drive tug, with steerable korts & the option of bow-thrusters; Pusher; Anchor Handler, with the option of several different cranes... and Fire Fighting capabilities, plus, inshore salvage work all within the scope of Euro - Girl.
With 'her' various winches, windlass, crane, fire monitors & salvage equipment, the Euro-Girl offers the modeller a compact, yet very 'full' tug.... fit for any occasion.
Working in the modeller's favour, the Euro-Girl as a new concept boat, offers several liveries, thus allowing 'free-license' of colour scheme for this compact 'full-of-fittings' tug, making the model the ideal choice for those 'Tuggers' who require a Powerful boat, that will 'do-the-stuff' as well as offering the ultimate in detail.
Working fire monitors & full working lights... the Euro-Girl is fitted with the 'New' regulation lights.... i.e. direction-of-travel, thus double the amount of normal lights, making an impressive array of illuminations.... plus, an intriguing array of winches & fittings giving an overall 'busy' appearence.
The Hull is Rust coloured, highly detailed GRP (glass fibre). extra laminates in & around the 'stress' points, to give the strongest construction possible.
Superstructure is from either timber or plastic, which ever is your modelling preference.
Single or Twin screw, steerable kort nozzle drive with choice of nozzle size & electric motor.
Scale ..... 1:32nd
OAL - 29 1/2"" (755mm)
Beam - 9 3/8"" (240mm)
Here are some photos of a completed build. I will in the next couple of days be posting photos of what was supplied.
