Hi Fellow Mayhem's,
Does any body have any plans for the KS Rotor Tugs especially the hull lines?

Hi Destroyer 42,
If you go to their website they have GA drawings of all their designs:
[url]http://www.rotortug.com/scripts/designs.php[url]
Like most Companies these days, they are very cagey about releasing too much info ie. hull sections, but as their GA's have plan, profile , fore and aft views it is quite easy to draught your own frames.
I have no idea where I got the attached drawing from or which design it's from (I have a feeling it's from the RT-60).
If you need photos of the RT's try this website:
[url]http://www.tugboats.de/index2e.html[url],
some good walkaround photos and even below waterline (while in drydock  {-)).
Hope this of some use.

Roger.

I believe those lines come off of a PDF that discussed the abilities of the rotor tug...

Hi Feinwerkbau,
Thats great thaks very much. I have also emailed KTS rotor tug and they are getting back to me. I have also visited their website and taken some info off to assist me. This is looking like my next project.
Should be pretty good for Tug towing and scale sailing.

Hi Umi,
Many thanks for your help. I have taken a lot of info off the KTS website. Hope I can get it made exactly like the real thing.

Hello,destroyer42
 
I realized the plans of the RT6O in 1/50, complete plan of the hull with the plan of the superstructures, can be that ca could interest you.

Ciao

Hi Bernard/81,
I would be very interested in a set of plans as I am able to re-scale them to the size I require.

Hi,

Give me your e-mail address, you sendings a 3D sample of the plan.

In which scale want to build your model.

Here are some photos of my hull realized according to this plan.

Hello

Hi Bernard i'm glad to see you on this excellent forum, one of the best in world ... Yes Martin ... O0 

I'm happy that you are working on the superstructures of your RT model waiting for the moulded hull <*<

Hummm I still alive, in a deep poop since some time with personal things (quite finish now) and I'll work on this soon as possible...  :embarrassed:

Yes folks, I'm in charge to make the mould after the superb master made by Bernard ... And I'm late   {:-{
