We are back with a brand new jumbo tug boat. In house we have been referring to this project as Carol Moran XXXL. Taking a look at the picture below of the 18″ Carol Moran and it’s new big sister will really drive the point home. Simply put it is the biggest tug boat we have ever made.
This 50″ model features balsa planking over laser cut poplar plywood frames. The cabin and pilot house are constructed from die-cut and laser cut poplar plywood with expanded pvc sheeting. The kit includes all of the detail pieces such as turned brass stanchions, cast metal parts, several large urethane castings, vacuum formed parts, decals and laser cut detail pieces. A 54 page instruction booklet and 108 corresponding figure drawings walks you step-by-step through construction. And as you would expect from a boat this size, it is a fantastic running model. If you have been thinking you might want to try living large, then you have to take a look at the new Carol Moran.
