I need to get an electric motor and digital speed controller which gives it a realistic movement of an old steam Sanson tugboat, any ideas or tips would be appreciated. I will start a build blog soon.

Great looking tug. The kit details say 25" long x 16" tall x 5.5" wide so not a lot of room inside.

Live long and prosper
