Microscale Harbor Tug
A microscale model of a modern harbor tug.
About this creation
A microscale model of a modern harbor tugboat, built at a scale of approximately 5 ft./stud (i.e. 1:190). While I wasn't trying to base this model on any particular real tugboat, I did rely on pictures of a few actual tugs (especially the Smit Nederland) for guidance on basic shaping and features.

Quoting Red October This is great! Could you maybe make a classic late 19th-early 20th-century tug? I would love to see that.
Thanks. I'd definitely consider doing a tug from that era, but I'd have to find one with the right characteristics and dimensions to work at my scale. Those earlier tugs tended to be much narrower than modern tugs, which could pose some difficultly for me. I do have plans to build another modern tug, a fairly well-know one, in the very near future.

Quoting Angelo Filipelli Great job! Color scheme and wheelhouse placement reminds me of a typical U.S Foss tug.
Thanks. The general shaping of this tugboat model is pretty typical of many modern tugs, so I'm not surprised that you see some resemblance to the ones built by Foss, even though I don't recall using a Foss tug as a reference.

Quoting Jeremy McCreary I love tugs, and this is a dandy! The deck equipment is nicely suggested at this scale.
Thanks. Clearly, at this scale, a lot of the detail has to go out the window, but I tried to incorporate those features that make the boat stand out as a tug. I may try a more classic tugboat at some point as well.

Quoting Steffen Rau Nice! It's not easy to find the parts when working on this scale.
Thanks. You're right, at this scale, where the beam of a ship is only about 6 studs, it is often difficult to find the parts that perfectly match your needs. Sometimes you have to go with less-than-optimal solutions.

Quoting Kurt's MOCs Nice work! The bow is particularly well done.
Thanks. At this scale, just making the bow look right can be a little bit of a challenge, but I think I managed at least to shape it well enough to distinguish it from other types of boats.
