Just finished adding a crews quarters and pump engine house to the stern of my barge, then added the necessary bitts for stern pushing.

Checking for size comparison and scale! The barge is 50 inches long by 12 inches beam, will draw 2 inches light and 6 inches loaded. I plan on making it an oil tank barge with a swiveling boom and two deck houses aft for the pump engine and housing for crew.

RMAS JOYCE A193 - Posted: 15 days ago by Nutbourne
This is one of the limited edition Sirmar kits that was produce in the early 1990’s.this model was made by a friend of mine who’s a dockyard fitter and turner it was made about twenty eight years ago. Based on a tug that I worked on in and around Portsmouth harbour. This model has a working voith unit opening engine room skylights. Working lights, removable deck hatch to get at the unit like the real boat, the superstructure and gun whales are made from plasticard. The fender was made by a friend to the same type as used on the tug. The wheelhouse is copied like for like. The towing hook is copied from photos and slips like the real one. In all my years I haven’t seen another one like this . Sirmar made twenty numbered hulls as kits .

Miss Doris - Posted: 18 days ago by Mariner85
The model is the Dumas El Pedro 30 inches length, 12 inch beam, drawing 4 I inches, which should change with more ballast. My mates suggest a barge is necessary so I am attempting a scratch build with leftover ply from other projects. Comments welcome!

Hi, There!

I remember I had the Tug Neptune. Some 35 years ago.
She's a very nice boat. And very maneuverable!

samson - Posted: 2 months ago by keithtindley
artesania kit of the tug samson .I always fit extra bits and pieces as i like to have individual non scale additions made from kit scraps attached or small resin items.They class this model as suitable for the inexperienced,i believe there should always be an adult to assist. The steel propshaft thread was damaged and i found the prop coupling is a bit cheap.The end result was excellent and the tug performs well
