Smit Rotterdam 478 - Posted: 8 months ago by sandkb
I've been building this Billings kit for some years now. [laid the keel in 2007 !!] but I'm slowly getting there. I've just recently joined this Website so not sure if this is the correct place to post some pictures of this build plus a yacht and steam launch. I'll start here anyway and no doubt someone will advise me for future postings.

Hi sandkb
Looking good. If you are intending to post build updates and ask for help I suggest you go to Build Blogs and start your own blog. You can then keep adding to the blog when you have progressed with the build. It not only helps inspire others, but may result in others sharing their own experiences with similar builds.
Good luck with the build and if you like my post please tick the like box.

Good strong tug, just like the real thing. Is it a kit and if so where can it be bought?
Response by watson220 on the 28th Jan 2017
It's not a classic kit from a reputable manufacturer produces a fellow marine modeller.

I have used my tugs to tow me round in a dingy, the looks from people watching are superb
Response by figtree7nts on the 10th Jan 2017
Hi chrys
Well, at 97Lbs that's quite impressive, you must make a video!

Hi jarvo
I'm must say I'm guilty of towing a rowboat while I was in it too.
People at the pond where amazed at how much power my little Tugboat had.

Creepy - Posted: 10 months ago by chumbucket
This is Creepy,a springer tug that is 5 yrs old now.He pushes #1200lb pumpkins for the pumpkin regatta along with saving many of the PMPBA club members boats from certain sinking or floating away.I never go to any of the club floats without him.He runs a Harbor freight 550 motor running a Target Hobby 320amp ESC,on a 5000mah 2s lipo battery.The plans can be downloaded free off the internet and takes about a week to build for the experienced builder,Great for the new boat builders to do because its an easy build tug.Simple door skins,some balsa,1/2a running gear from Dumas,1.5 brass prop,2x2 rudder from aluminum,cheap 2channel radio,ESC from Target Hobby.

Michael (formerly Carol Moran) - Posted: 11 months ago by Grandpa
My grandson Michael helped me build this kit last winter. We had fun researching existing tug boats of the era, and upgrading some of the details. After the bath tub test, I changed from direct drive to a 3:1 ratio motor to keep it running at a scale speed.
