Who sells these Kits?
« on: December 05, 2007, 04:20:05 AM »

Ahoy shipmates,
I have seen these two tugs on a website and would like to know who sells the kits for them?

One is the Smit Vikingbank the other one is the Smit Olivierssen I am assuming they are built from kits but I seem unable to locate them on the web anywhere, can anyone shed any light on either of them?

These are most definately not versions of the Billings Smit Nederland. They are completely different. Suggest you do a search for Jan den Hartigh and you'll find a link to a site with pics. By the looks of it these could be scratchbuilt. Scale Hobbies do a hull of the Smit Polen which is a bit closer to what you are looking for

Hi
I think that you will find that this model is scratch built from the original drawings including the schottel units,

If thats a typical sized B & D type workbench in the bottom pic then the model is huge - definitely not Billings !

That looks twice the size of anything Billing have ever kitted.

Found the site - http://www.tugboats.de/vikingbank_e.html

it says... "This model of the Vikingbank was built by Jan den Hartigh. The modeltug is powered by two selfmade Azimuth-Thruster."

Okay guys, guess I was wrong. Not Billings then......Mind you I do agree. The models are far too big.
