Help needed identifying model!
« on: September 12, 2020, 02:48:56 PM »

Hi all,


I've recently been given a very detailed model of what I assume is an ocean-going tug, but I have no idea if it is of a prototype, or a "freelance" design. Would love to know more about it if anyone has any thoughts. I think it is scratch built but it could be an old kit. So far all of my Internet searches have drawn a blank. It's approx 1:35 scale and 1220mm long. The only identification is the CS on the funnel and on a brass plate on the deckhouse front. Would be very interested in the history of the prototype (if there is one).


Many Thanks,


Will

Photos would be a great help - if not essential.

Bonjour William,
If she has two propellers shafts, she could possibly be a Muimota :
