    I picked this up from the estate of a young man. As with most of my boats, it is sort of a "rescue". It is basically sound, but somebody before me cut all the wiring out of it.
    It is equipped with all the lights the kit is supposed to have, as well as a bow thruster. I have started resoldering all the electrical connections, still working through what kind of wiring harnesses I will need to build for the various light circuits.
    Some of the railings, etc. need rebuilding or re-attaching.
    It should be a nice boat when finished.

    Thank you all for the kind comments.
    I agree, my boat does look like the currently offered "Atlantic".
    However, it is indeed the now discontinued "Amsterdam".
    I am not aware of what the differences are, as they look VERY similar.
    *I see some differences at the top of the superstructure. The Atlantic looks to be somewhat simplified.
    There must be some reason Artesania Latina reintroduced it as the Atlantic.
    If anybody knows the history or reasoning behind this, I'd love to hear it.

    Here is all I can find about it:

    If you loved Amsterdam RC, our new Atlantic RC will shock you.
    This model has become one of our best-sellers. His wonderful finishing and his capabilities in the water makes Atlantic RC simply wonderful.
    Moreover, this maquette made in wood and plastic is a faithful replica of the tugboats of the 70s and 80s.
    Do you want to know more about this model? Then, you have to follow this link:

    You got it in great condition Dave, very good.
    I wonder why they cut the electrical cables.
    What reason was there?
    Before carrying out the soldering I would check that the connections are correct and then by powering up that everything is working. Surely you have already thought about it.

    Wonderful find of a very sturdy looking monster tug. Thought it was the Billings "Bankert," at first but I'm wrong. I am with Rudy, it seems to be the Artesania Latina Atlantic.
