Norry,

We have a "Dutch Partner" already built and are in the process of kitting it   :)

Hey, Jackie and Lawrie,

You cannot leave it at that and keep us all in suspense!

Just a little detail, please to wet our appetites: e.g. size of model; motive force; probable release date.

(Still love my first build of your "Loyal Class" Fleet Tender).

Model Slipway keeps doing that! It works for Deal or No Deal and Chris Tarrant.....but not for us keen model makers ;)

Come on Slipway out with it!

If its 1/32 scale it will be 870mm x 296, according to my calculations. But we don't know the scale yet.

I would love it to be at least 1200mm. Give the postman something decent to carry.   ;)

Laurie,

What scale are you making the Dutch courage at and would the graupner schottel drives fit in the rear if people want to fit them

Thanks guys.

The Dutch tug is at 1:32 scale, with fixed kort nozzles. Don't know about the Graupner schottel drives, we haven't tried them.

She visited Barry, South Wales earlier this year to drop the Terra Marique off.

Looks a very smart tug, quite a bit about her and her sister vessels on tugspotters.com

...Hi Guys...

Thanks for all the information, pictures & links on this series of Dutch Tugs...

I have now decided that I am going to scratch build a model of this series using a Mobile Marine Models NANGEE hull which i will modify to suit..

Twin 12 volt Decaperms will drive 56mm Variable Pitch Props in Fixed Nozzles with Steerable Rudders...

I wiil also build the Model Slipway Kit when it is released next year...

I will keep you all updated on the build...

...Best Regards & Thanks...Norry...
