Most popular Model tug?
« on: December 12, 2009, 10:41:52 PM »


Just wondering, what IS the most popular model tug ever built?

 You must have built it or owned it yourself complete, not just the kit or plans!.

Mine:

Aqua Onterio
Robbe Happy Hunter
Ripmax Carlton
Seaport Tugs x 3
Springers

Imara and Joffre are probably the ones I've seen most often built up at shows and clubs, I've seen quite a few of the Resolve fleet tug too.
Billings' Smit Nederland seems to be a popular and well-known kit, but I haven't actually seen many of them built up (in person, at least - seen quite a few on the web).

Hobby Engine (believe previously marketed by Graupner) -- RTR Southampton.

Good fun and lots of modelers have carried out modifications.

Based on what I see on the net, the Smit Nederland and the Amsterdam seem to be well up there. There are two Neddy's and two Amsterdam's in our club . I have one of each.
  I wouldn't say they are my favourite tugs, but they do seem popular.
