Sea Queen - Posted: 4 years ago by modeltugman
this model was made from a set of mouldings purchased from the Internet, they were for a 1944 Birch class empire tug, the one I chose to make was the Empire Walter, later re named Sea Queen and she worked In the Bristol and Avon area.

I am restoring a tug that is named "Avon Queen" she is a Birch class Empire tug.I have looked for her history, but only came up with Sea Queen. I wondered if you knew if there was an Avon Queen and what her empire name was. The model I have originally had a live steam engine in it, taken out before I bought it. She is 1.6m (5'3") long 1/20th scale.

Bourbon Orca - Posted: 4 years ago by boatmadman
Bourbon Orca Is an anchor handling vessel based In Bergen.
The owners and builders wouldn't let me have a set of lines, so, I designed this myself on Delftship from photos available on the web.

The hull Is plank on frame, driven by twin 900 size motors off 12v. She has an action twin esc and mixer which enables her to pivot on her own axis without the need to use the bowthruster

The Lady Hilary - Posted: 5 years ago by Stroller
Scratch built New York Harbour tug. Wanted something different from the norm. Quite powerful, too much really had to power her on 6v even though she was geared down. Up for sale now on ebay. Dont get the time to sail her much because of work.

Sct. Knud (St. Canute) - Posted: 5 years ago by Mzee
Sometime around 1968 I found a small set of drawings, about A4 size, for Sct. Knud In (I think) Ships Monthly. So I enlarged to 1:32 scale and made my model plank-on-frame with GRP overcoat. She Is powered by a 6V Pittman motor driving a self-made scale prop and 2:1 gearbox. Steering Is effected via chain and quadrant as per prototype! Everything bar the anchor, anchor chains and steering chains Is self-made using a variety of materials (brass, plastics, 'Perspex', and copper electro-deposited cowl vents). Recently I fitted her out with LED lights: Interior, navigation and working. One might notice that I abhor a working boat looking like "Daddy's yacht" and so I apply custom dings, stains, oil spills, scratches, wear and tear to my tugboats 😀 My Knud runs as well today as she did 45 years ago and In all that time has only needed one repair to her gearbox!
