SMIT NEDERLAND - Posted: 1 month ago by Inkoust
Construction of laminate hull, superstructure and accessories are made of ABS and laminate. 2 pcs drive motors 600, 2 pieces of lead acid batteries 6V 10A. Scale Processing of fully functional rudder, mast complete lighting, headlights and hooting. As a result of the fact that they can not give more pictures here, there is a link to the Czech modeling pages where the whole construction of the tug is built. http://www.mo-na-ko.net/php/portal/viewtopic.php?id=2282

Thanks, For sharing the Pictures of your build.
I really like the Smit Nederland.👍
Can you put pictures, of having worked on the Bulwark!
Response by sandkb on the 6th Apr 2017
Thanks for the pics. You've made an excellent job there.
I'm building the Billings "Smit Rotterdam 478" Kit so I'm very interested in seeing your build. What is the length and scale of it ?
Have you built this vessel from scratch or is it a kit ? If it is a kit who manufactures them ?
Cheers and well done.

Ayton cross or as close as.. - Posted: 2 months ago by sonar
I bought a used hull of the Ayton Cross and look all over the internet for some plans but found none.
I did find a lot of images though.

I bought most if not all of the fittings and since have decided that the way to go is to make what you can from what I can get hold of.

So all other model boats are and will be scratch made.
I have two on the burner at the moment.

Anyway some of the Ayton Cross looks right some of it does not.

But I can always do it again as I hopefully get a little better.
This one again is awaiting Ballast and it will be ready to go.
I fitted two Engel 12 volt motors and made the mounts in grp then Laminated them into position..

Everything has been hand painted and slightly aged .

The bow thruster was made using some household plumbing pipe a small propshaft Again home made and it works very well.


Something to play with as I build hopefully better.

springer tug no 3 - Posted: 2 months ago by sonar
Well this is the 3rd version I have made of a springer tug.

Grp Hull and this time using 2 mm plastic.
Balsa wood and again what ever I could find laying around.

The decking is just printed paper and stuck down with Varnish.

Just needs some ballast and it is ready to go.

Number 2 attempt springer Tug - Posted: 2 months ago by sonar
So this was attempt number two at a springer tug.. A little better than the very first one.

Again a home made grp hull and everything else Balsa wood and a few bits I could find about the house..

Well this one too has been scrapped and the hull reused.
Or set aside for another one at a later date.

So at this time is just a fitted out hull

1st ever Spinger tug model - Posted: 2 months ago by sonar
Well this was the very first model boat i made.
A springer tug.
I made a mould and then made a few just in case i was to the point of everything going wrong at least I could start another one.

Apart from the home made GRP hull everything else was made in Balsa wood.

Since been scrapped but the hull and all the electrics ect have been reused again for another version..

Saw this Tug under shelter in Mahone Bay, N.S. - Posted: 2 months ago by Grandpa
I know it was built in 1959 as the DPW tugboat "Enmore". It was named T.A.2 until 2009. Does anyone know anything else about this type of tug?

I got the information from this website:

Amara - Posted: 2 months ago by Rod
I built this one from a Caldercraft kit and powered it with a twin screw steam engine
Model has steam horn sound together with bilge pump and fully equipped lighting system
Have extensively weathered the model to create realism to imitate what it probably looked like after many years steaming and working round the world in the 1930's
A smoke generator has also been fitted which together with the twin screw steam engine gives a realistic look when on the water

Smit Rotterdam - Posted: 2 months ago by Mansell
This is the kit I am offering to Garibaldi. I bought it as a gift for my grandson but lost interest. That was 24 years ago, and it has sat in my garage ever since I am ashamed to say
