Aloha!     
 
If you browse the trader section you'll find a lot of companies in the UK that sell all kinds of boats.  As for companies on the mainland US perhaps some of our American and Canadian chums can help out.
 
You might want to check this out too!

Aloha!   and Welcome to the Mayhem!   :-)

1=happyhunter kit tugboat - I would guess through one of the USA Model shops, as shipping from USA should be cheaper than from Europe.

2=aziz tugboat kit - Direct from Model Slipway. http://www.modelslipway.com/

3=odin tugbot kit - Again I would guess through one of the USA Model shops.

Failing that, some of the UK shops will ship:

Welcome Seathug, why dont you knock together a Springer from local junk and with a local tug style top while you wait for your choice of tug to arrive.   There are a few tuggies on Mayhem that will chime in with advice regarding choice of kit.  Is shipping to your part of the world major factor, perhaps plans only might be less expensive.

Oh well, they come in whatever shape , colour or flavour you choose to make them, just like Howard Johnsons  :}   You`ll need SOME woodworking experience whatever you choose. Good luck and be sure to post your build pictures...anything you want to know just ask the tuggers on here. O0

also, I don't know whether the Robbe Odin or Happy Hunter are still available, but these people or Robbe themselves would be best to contact.

I take it RC Heaven is not a model boat supplier or rc electic, though they might have contacts in the US (I had a look in the Hawaii yellow pages  :D )

I'd still rather be there than here especially when the September weather is more like November.
Seriously though,  with Oahu's naval history it suprises me that there isn't a great model boat scene.

Hi newbie from Hawaii visited your island some years ago. Hobby stores not very good not much in Pearl either. I did enjoy the Arizona and Missouri and Bowfin visits.

I don't think Rotterdam would be any good in rough waters seathug..........have you looked at Mobile  marine models for their tugs...very nice stuff.   http://www.mobilemarinemodels.com/acatalog/Model_Boat_Tug.html
