Sir William Hoy - Posted: 3 years ago by ralphwilmot
Started Sir William Hoy In 2013 and Is 45 Inches In length and I am still working on the fittings and finishing. The original coal fired tug was built 1929 In the N.E. of England.
Both model tugs have twin motors geared down 6 to 1 and have differential steering.

J.R. More and the Sir William Hoy - Posted: 3 years ago by ralphwilmot
Both these models are scratch built Durban tugs In 1:48 scale.

Built J.R. More between 2011 and 2012 and Is 41 Inches In length. The original oil fired tug was built 1961 on the Clyde and was one of the last steam tugs to be built on the Clyde. This tug still exists at the Durban Museum and Is undergoing restoration.

Tug - Made for taking photos of club boats - Posted: 3 years ago by JediErn
Just fancied doing something different. Started out with a deck mounted small camera and converted It on 27th Nov 2011 to an Internally mounted Olympus C7070 camera. Fitted with 2 electric motors to give full manoeuvrability. Lots of small mods but not used during 2013. After lots of try with video decided to try single frame pictures. Decided to keep with still pictures. May 2014 started to rework boat to look more like a tug and decided to rename It - Owner AMD, Operated by ACME STUDIOS, Renamed LILIAN ROSE. Bought a new cheap camara from Tescos so If lost would only lose me £30. Also fitted bigger batteries. Then started selling pictures.

Fighting Cock - Posted: 3 years ago by Trillium
Fighting Cock was one of the fleet of North West Tugs (Liverpool Screw Towing and Lighterage Company) steam tugs, built by Cammell Laird In 1953. The model Is built on a Kingston Mouldings Sun tug hull, the superstructure Is scratchbuilt from styrene, with many fittings from Mobile Marine Models. The motor was 'rescued' from a mainframe computer data drive, and Is direct drive to the propeller. Power Is from 12V gell cell batteries with a speed control by EA Electronics. Both hull and motor were given to my father many many years ago, and the model was completed approx 7 years ago.

This Is The lass that can - Posted: 4 years ago by EAGLE
Hi
I'll try and get It right this time. This Is my granddaughters springer. 18x8 Inch, 4 Inch rudder, 540/1, 6v sla, with a35 three blade brass prop,she's only 4 so If you come to sail on our pond, give her plenty of room. The safety part of It ,is she has a 10mm flashing red led on the top. Sorry I dropped on my last post

Is she steam or electric?
Response by EAGLE on the 19th Apr 2016
Electric, 555 motor on 7.4 lipo, with a 35 mm three blade brass prop, the run times about 120 mins. She cuts through the water well, even going astern. Half of the plan was missing, so l can'nt say what the model is called.
Regards Dave
