Scale Tug Boat Plans

Cornwall Model Boats | Model Boat & Ship Plans | Marine Modelling International |  Scale Tug Boat Plans

Tug Boats

We have a number of varied tugs in the plans listings, offering a selection of differing prototypes for this ever popular style of model. With high displacement for any given length, plenty of large scale detail and sturdy fittings, they make excellent general use models and yet offer a real challenge to high quality scale modellers.
Please Note: These plans are printed to order and take approximately 7 days for us to obtain.

Difficulty Rating: One Star

One star means that the plan is an elementary design suitable for the beginner or first time plan builder.
