You change the superstructure only, can you change the hull?

why don't you just get one on ebay..here in the USA the tugboat is $56 but they list for up to $90...

Where in the US would one look.

Haven't found any of the on-line usual suspect hobby suppliers that have them?

I'm assuming that the Dickies is a brand name, as there are a number of Dickies Unimog RC truck conversions on the web videos.

I haven't hit toy's R us or the local stores yet.

thanks in advance

From friends in the US, eBay seems to be the place to get them. They go under the names "Dickie" "Seaport" and "Hen Long" and are called either a "Harbor Tug" or "Workboat"

See what eBay pulls up for you.

Glad I got a couple while I could.
