Bad enough with large scale RC Mike, wouldn't know how to begin on on something like this.

Perhaps one of Dean's micro drive set-ups would be suitable for this.

I'm gravely disappointed that this tug is not an R/C conversion... I had high hopes.  >:-o ok2

Seems this tug despite being 9" in length is a popular kit for R/C and a hacked servo seems to be the most popular method of propulsion (although the German site depicts another alternative).

Seems yours has an altered pilothouse; the original front bulkhead is not curved. I like the sunken idea though...  {-)
