So you are looking for a 1/48 scale model of a 50 foot tug?

12-1/2 inches long...?

Hmmmm....

Okay, somone posted these 1964 plans a while back.
Build to the scale you want, full hull, or just water line.

RichBaron, Lionel sells or used to sell Tug boats. You should be able to still find them for sale at Lionel dealers or on Ebay.

I considered recommending the Lindberg tug, but the doors just seem too small for a 1-1/2" tall (6 foot) man.

Umi,
How are we going to put a 1-1/2" tall door on a 13" tug?

Maybe Rich needs to tell us how long the tug should be.
My Billings Banckert is 1/48 scale and is about 23 " long.
