    I decided to renovate a very old model tug which belonged to my Dad. This has been in the family for over 80 years and was in need of some TLC. It is now fully radio controlled and runs from 2 x 18650-2000mAh batteries. Length: 41cm, Beam:11cm, Draft: 6cm, weight: 1.5Kg.

    I had a similar model my father made for me. Passed it to my Grandson now in USA.
    Seem to remember was based on a model makers hobby plan.
    Also refurbished it, but added new motor as original โ€œMighty Midgetโ€ had been wet and seized.
