Egrete. Rhine pusher tug.



So another project to start soon too!. This is a full kit build, comprising of a flat pack or plasticard sheets to make up both the hull and superstructure.  the tug also has an interesting feature,  the wheelhouse section is capable of being raised and lowered to enable the tug to sail under some of the low bridges on the river. This will be made to function, as well as the 2 rotating radar units on either side of the wheelhouse gangway behind the wheelhouse. I will be fitting 2 swiveling kort nozzles with 50mm propellers, but the motor units are yet to be decided on.The pictures shown so far in the gallery are of someone elses build, purely to give you all an example of what one of these pusher tugs looks like for now. My own build will follow in due course.
