There was a web page dedicated to these a while back [years], I seem to have lost it during one of my wipe-outs,
It was done by a ?fifth form education project for a German colledge?

I got some feedback from the teacher (in English) But alas cannot even think further than that present, I may come back on this one. Good luck with it.

" how fast to these type of models go i want a speed of about a fast walk. "

Its not a fast boat and being flat fronted [tech term] it ploughs through the water and takes a bit of control to keep a straight line if going too fast, and it turns in its own length without bow thrusters.

[Like a snow plough]

If I was to build another I would go for 24th scale it don't take up much boot space.

Hi all I think Egrete is based on one of the Danube / Rhine type  pusher tugs.  I remember seeing detailed drwings of a similar one in Model Shipwright some years ago.  I am looking at some old M.S's right now will let you know if I find her.

Hi all, I found the article in Model.Shipwright. I am afraid it is a while back, Dec. 1977.  Boat by name is Hippolyte Bloch, another name to check out is Pierre Brouse.
Both are Rhine pusher tugs.  Article written by James Pottinger, who I think is on another thread and interested in any working models made to his plans.  So he may be able to help.
regards Roy

Hi, a quick measurement of H. Bloch suggests a boat length of 40 feet.  So 4 feet would be 1:10 scale.
hope this helps Roy

5 feet is going to be heavy, a lot of ballast to go in that tug
