Jane and Puffer - Posted: 1 month ago by lesliebreame
We had a good day out at Ilfracombe pond on Monday with light wind so we could get steam up quite readily. Picture shows my coal fired puffer project and Duncans steam paddle boat fired by tablets.

👍Detail of figures and dog added to Tug ... you can just see the dog at the back! 👍
I Googled 'model figures for Model tugboat' and several sites came up. - Hobbies at Revingham, Suffolk was one. Gaupner ( I think) was another.

Imara - Posted: 2 months ago by Novagsi0
About 10 years old, currently with a DC motor setup Hectoperm but complete base plate can be swapped for a 2 cylinder cheddar models Proteus boiler and steam plant. With ABC boiler control. Lovely detailed model, cruses well on 4 Lead acid batteries in parallel lots of power from the MARXX motor and 60 ~ 70mm I forget, 4 blade brass prop. Actually needs more weight in the back already 4 lumps of lead in the back and some plates of stainless steel. When it gets moving the bow wave is huge. 😁

Triton - Posted: 4 months ago by Krampus
With my boats getting routinely stranded in the middle of nowhere, I felt compelled to commission a rescue vessel and "Triton" was born. "Triton" is a Springer-type tug push boat. With a hull and superstructure consisting of an “Indiana” style command cabin, it was built using a pretty basic birch plywood American kit designed for swimming pool water polo. Kit altered to resemble a fictitious Salvamento Marítimo (Spanish Coast Guard) unit following Salvamento Marítimo’s actual boat markings. Equipment and deck layout inspired on actual Springer tug push boats supporting larger vessels and barges found in US and European ports and rivers. Model built during September – October 2015. Approx. 1/18 scale. Real life boat could be a 30-footer (9.14m) vessel. Equipped with 9v LED navigation lights and sound system. Powered by an HPI Racing 1145 Gt 550 Motor, NiMH 7.4v battery, a 3-bladed 44mm propeller, and a 6-12V 320A RC Ship & Boat R/C Hobby Brushed Motor Speed Controller.

Thank you folks!
Response by RNinMunich on the 28th Aug 2017
Nice one Krampus👍
Great cabin detail, fits your general 20 to 28" size limit well!😉
Cheers Doug 😎
Response by sandkb on the 13th Oct 2017
Very nice vessel. I'm thinking I will have to build a recovery craft of some sort and something like that would do it for me. Weed is a bit of a problem where I sail and have been thinking a swamp boat (airboat). Any thoughts ?

Statia Relaint - Posted: 4 months ago by chugalone100
First and foremost I would like to thank everyone that answered my question about fiberglassing. Your help guided me through the process and I believe that it came out very good, but still needs more work to smooth out the resin and of course I will post more progress pictures later on.
The name of the tug is “STATIA RELAINT”.
This is one of a fleet of four vessels built by Samakona Yards in Spain.
I chose this one because of the stealth lines that has throughout the structure or just because I love how it looks.
I am an artist (painter), and we fall in love with colors and shapes, so maybe thats another reason why Im building this particular one.
I was lucky to find the plans and enlarge them to 33” approximately 1/32 scale.
This will be my FIRST scratch built even dough I have built others from kits, but never like the experts I see in this forum.
I will be open for questions, suggestions and criticism.
Thank You
Julian
From Sunny Miami.
