    This is firstly a TID Tug and a model of Brent which was owned by Port of London Authority on the river Thames the boat had a fold down funnel for the low dock bridges, at 70 ft long the model is built at 1:32 scale making a 27 inch model built from lite ply frames skinned with 1mm ply the superstructure is 40 thou plasticard sheet. I eventually settled on just a low drain 540 motor because of its small size driving a 45mm prop, the fittings are commercial and were supplied at shows by Mountfleet models.
    The boat now resides with a volunteer who works on the preserved vessel moored in Kent.

    I love the Tid Tug. I built mine on a Kingston Mouldings hull and plan. You must have great satisfaction building the hull from ply. The open bridge makes a nice change.πŸ‘
