This tug was built by a modeler in Bristol during the early 1960's it was given to me at the Abergavenny Steam and vintage show in 2016 by the makers grandson who told me it had been on display in his mums house from 1970 when his grandad died till 1987 when she died then put in his parents attic till it was given to me. it had a couple of holes in the hull and the upper works had been broken so required fixing. not having any pictures I used all the original bits that came with it so I hope it looks as it should. It's made mostly from balsa with some wooden bits and replacement planking from coffee stirrers otherwise all original. It requires 2 x 12v 7ah lead acid batteries and about 5 kilograms of ballast. (Silver Sand in 500grm packs). On the only test run I've managed to tow a 16 foot fishing boat with three men on my local fishing lake.

REWELL Kit 1:72, fitted with 3 MIG 280 DC motors, 3 DC controllers up to 20A, 1 LiPol battery 2200mA, 4 channel Turnigy receiver, one microswitch for two rudders. It is dyed with REWELL semi-matt colors in synthetic colors and at the end over decals and the whole ship three layers of glossy REWELL lacquer. The ship was imported with lead by the keel so that it did not curve on the opposite side in turns. Because I did not reach the four-bladed bolts, I modified three-blade brass. For the time being, the boat has only been tested in a bath at home due to winter weather in the Czech Republic. For its 64 cm it is designed for riding on a calm surface. If I can evaluate this kit it is excellent. I can only recommend.

I did a build log a few months ago & she had her pond tryouts on Nov. 9 2017 . It was a very chilly day but I always like to put a little Rum on my models before first sail & fortunately I had a little rum left over to take the chill off . I always try to put a penny in my models for the year it was built no more pennies in Canada & now it's a nickel which I could not find because of our Centennial year so used a loonie .
