Title: Robbe Odin v Tyne Models Northsider?
Post by: Martin [Admin] on April 21, 2009, 11:25:40 AM
Via email to Mayhem....

 Hello Mayhem, do you know where I can obtain reviews for two tugs, the
 Robbe tug Odin, and the Tyne models, Northside. I am all at sea as to
 which one to build.

  Thank you,
    P M.

The Odin was reviewed in MMI or Model Boats a long time ago.

I've seen both these tugs on our pond 'Hull East Park'  They're both fine models and hefty pieces of kit to lift. The Odin has all the Robbe extras available, it all depends on how deep your pockets are. If I was to choose between them I would pick the Northsider only because you don't see that many of them around. Best of luck whichever one you choose.

Northsider every time, some power & a very imperious attitude on the water, an excellent model.

No comparison between the two Northsider/Ironsider for me every time.
