Small Tugboat

By: Richard Hyams

This is a 3.5" long (yes three and a half inches) polystyrene model of a freelance tug, the motor is from a tooth brush and is powered by a tiny accumulator (re-chargeable through the roof of the cabin) It was intended to be radio controlled but the size was not big enough to take the draught required to support the equipment. The hull was made from fibre glass from a mould taken off a wooden master to my own design.
