    Tug hulls

    I'm looking to buy a LARGE tug hull. 44" or better. Can anybody steer me in the right direction? How does one get hold of Hartman Tugs?? Mike

    Microglass has a hull for an old steam tug...

    you will have to build up your own superstructure for it though.

    The largest Dumas has is 39"

    If you want a modern tug, you may have to consider scratch building a boat at 1/24 or larger scale...

    The only way you are going to find a Hartman hull is either someone selling it or Ebay. Dwight went on to sail away in calmer waters back in November.

    RE: Tug hulls

    TUGS, Check out some of the model boat suppliers across the pond. I was on there the other day looking at a 48" general tug hull,could have been Metcalf Mouldings or one of the other suppliers over there. You can get to them by links from other model boat site in U.S. . I still have an old HARTMAN envelope with all the pictures and stuff, nice tugs. So get pointing and clicking, let me know how you make out. I have a 48"" tug I built from a DUMAS hull I got for $30.00 at a hobbie auction. Built it up from pictures of the Moran tugs in Portsmouth, Nh. Roger

    RE: Tug hulls

    Does anyone know where I can get a 45" Shelly Foss hull? Dumas sold the mold to:??? I've built two tugs from this hull, and its a good one. Many of the hulls from the UK, and Euro, cost too much by the time they get here!!

    RE: Tug hulls

    I don't think anyone finds that hull except at garage sales and maybe eBay...
    You could scratch build one if you could get a hold of the plans for the small version.

    Most of the European company products, are available through Harbor models... They sell the microglass hull also

    I can buy a complete full sized Chevy V8 engine rebuilt & delivered for $1200.

    Something seriously wrong with Americans paying any price for anything. Sick.

    Private built hulls are the best. How about a couple pictures.
