A translation of his first post courtesy of google. It seems like he's bought a hull and plan set and then a mixture of commercial items.....

I like a lot of units but the biggest fondness I have for tugboats and all sorts of related freak, so my choice was on a ship fire "STRAŻAK- 3" model will be made on the basis of modeling plans NR50 1:25 in the scale model is 130cm long with a displacement hull is about 9kg so there should not be any problems when installing the c drive or power supply and other accessories RC .In the intentions of the hull and the whole model has to be done mainly polystyrene and foamed PVC and such were the plans for the frames have even been cut but the plans slightly changed because I found a nice hoof Fireman and was on the basis of that hoof cast hull, frames, however, were useful because the hull in the middle of a tendency towards propagation and wlaminowałem to stiffen 4 frames. The hull is painted with paint primer to detect shortcomings and the luted something. The work probably will be proceeded slowly, and I hope that the construction will lead to the end and eliminate the mistakes that I made in the construction of H-300

Bonjour,
Brian60, you write that you plan to build a 1,30 m tug which would displace about 9 kilos. I wish sharing my experience with you about this assumption because I have a collection including several (steam) tugs (0,82 m ==> 1,40 m) and the 1,30 m ones weigh between 20 and 30 kilos. No room issue to install a powerful propulsion machine, but a significant weight to be taken in account especially if you add the transport case... My haviest tug, the 1,40 m Côte d'Emeraude tug never navigates because it weighs +/- 45 kilos with its dedicated case, so I need a friend to come with me, put it in the car, on the water...  {:-{ [size=78%] [/size]

Bonjour Raphael....just to explain, Brian60 is quoting from the 'builder in the Polish communication', not Brian's own work...... Derek
