Not much of Bantam 2 on Google but a few photos of the other Bantams show the exhaust could be either forward or aft of the wheelhouse.
Are they vents or windows behind the wheelhouse?

Also found a good build log that may be of interest to you…

Very interesting subject, please keep us posted with some progress photos and updates.

Thanks for your help Steve, but i trying to find anything about exactly the "Yellow" wheelhouse model of the Bantam tug, I have searched and searched the net.... but whit only a few pictures. I haw finished a "motorflote push tug" whit excellent help from member U-33, so this is my reserve project.

Hi ,


Anymore progress on your tugs?


A few years ago I had a day of operating Bantam Tug Growler on the Grand Western Canal in Devon. Noisy but fun.

That's a very good 'weathering' job and it looks very realistic.
