ActiveActive exhibits all the character of a modern harbour tug. Although the cheapest model in our range, the kit contains the same high quality parts as our more expensive models.
A superb performer on the water, Active could quite rightly be described as the best value model boat kit available today!
Based on the Liverpool Alexandra Towing Company Fleet, Active is typical of a modem harbour tug that can be seen earning its keep at many UK harbours. The excellent handling of the full size prototype is perfectly reproduced in the model.
Definitely one for the sailing enthusiast as well as the builder!

Built by Lobnitz & Co. Ltd, Renfrew, Scotland with the yard No. 478. Launched in 1895, originally named Clive, she disappeared from mercantile navy lists after 1935.

BritanniaThis model is based mainly on old photographs of a Tyne Pilot Boat. So far as is known the colours are correct and she features a large anchor windlass on the fore deck. One thing that is certain is she was built onto the already proven 86' Steel Drifter Hull so fits readily into our range and builds into a clean uncluttered model which is ideal for steam or electric power. With the large saloon entry house good access is assured, and that, along with her funnel position makes her ideal for steam installation and the opening doors etc ensure a plentiful air supply to burners.
Photographs show a builders type ladder lashed to the forward boom and we have faithfully portrayed that on the model.
Little is know about the prototype apart from the photos we based the model on, but she is a typical Tyne Pilot Boat from the turn of the century.

She was launched in 1907 and spent her service life on the River Tyne in the North East of England.

EmpireThis pretty model provides lots of scope as it was launched in naval service and had a second life in civilian service (see history below). The only problem will be choosing which one to model - you may have to do both!

AdmiraltyWith such a long service life in both military and civilian guises, this model can be built as either, providing the modeller with a choice of completing either model, each having their own character.
Whichever version you build the result is a large impressive model, which is a great performer on the water.
the photos opposite are a mixture of both versions.
Typical of many such craft built for servicing fleet vessels. One of a group built by Yarwoods of Northwich, C.642 was launched in 1946 and served until being placed for disposal in 1956. Purchased by F.T. Everard & Sons Ltd of Greenwich, Kent, C.642 was renamed the 'Clanity' and used for a short period as a dry cargo carrier before being lengthened and widened in a conversion to a tanker. Steam propulsion was retained until she ended her days in a scrap yard in Antwerp in 1969.

OspreyA superbly detailed model which lends itself to so much extra detailing you may never want to finish it.

Due to the nature of the subject there is lots of scope for weathering. These ships served long and under harsh conditions, and when completed the model looks so real you can almost smell the salt air! A fantastic nostalgic subject that will be the pride of place in any fleet.
An Armed Drifter of the First and Second World War periods. literally hundreds of these Steel or Wooden vessels were taken into The Royal Navy Auxiliary Service and converted in yards around the country.
