Guys which commercial hull would be most suitable for building Clyde Marines 'Bruiser', also are there plans available for the tug?

I would imagine that Bryan Ward of Mobile Marine Models should have something suitable.

It looks a bit like a Damen Stantug hull to me.

Kingston Mouldings do a Dutch Harbour tug hull at 29 by 9ins 1:30 scale which might suit your needs........just a thought....... :-))

To add to my previous post you should find more pics of Bruiser if you put in...'TUG BRUISER' your search engine.  There are a few pics of Waverley being towed to Garvel by Bruiser, on the bow, and another trug on the stern.  The pics are taken from the air.
The heading is under the Erskine posting, No.2 down the listing.

If you can't find it come back to me and I'll try to send you the pix by email.
Hope this helps... :-)) :-))

...Hi Davy...

Hows it going Mate...We really enjoyed ourselves on Sunday...Thanks Again to your club for their hospitality...

The "BRIUISER" is a Damen Stan Tug 1907...The upgraded model of the Stan Tug 1906 of which Clyde Marines "BATTLER" is an example...

Mobile Marine Models do a Stan Tug 1605 & a 1906 hull...The best hull, I think would be a Model Slipways "WYEFORCE" hull & build your model at 1/24 Scale.../

...Hope this helps...

...Best Regards...Norry...

I am planning to build a Damen Stan Tug 1907 - the Bruiser, in this case - as a model.

The Kit of "Sievers Modellbau" Germany seems to have some faults.

Does anybody have a body plan?

I found a general plan for the Bruiser, but it seems difficult for me to create a body plan
out of only side view, front and back view.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Best Regards
