Help to re-build this model
« on: August 11, 2011, 11:14:27 PM »

I have "inherited" a R/C Modern tug boat, named SUNBEAM. The superstructure is in dire need of repair, and whilst I think I have all the parts, some are missing.  The trouble is that I don't know what it should look like! I don't know if this is a standard model of a specific protoype, or some generic model.  Does anyone recognise it and help me how it should look?
