yes Charlie........made by Dumas from the USA........mixed reports as to the machining of the wooden parts..............some love em, and some not so, but they look very nice when finished properly...........no good for me though as they are of POF and I am probably the world's worst at planking unless its a deck that's flat, {-).....often seen on ebay, the whole range.

this is one of Dumas's range of their tugs, but a quick search didn't reviele the Seguin at the mo. neil.

I'm currently building a Dumas Lord Nelson Victory tug and I have to tell you that it's the worst kit I've ever had. The planking is the softest balsa imaginable - un-useable, in fact - and the quality of the ply die-cutting is appalling. These are just the two worst features of the kit; there are numerous other "gripes". I'd advise you to have a good look through the kit if you can before you buy it.

Actually made by Midwest. I believe Midwest no longer makes boat kits. Timber is Basswood and Microlite ply with some Mahogany. Vastly superior to any of the Dumas wooden kits.
