well; here is a odd model I have acquired. I shall add a picture if I can. The model looks like Lloydsman? has a extra blue funnel plus the lifting arms are not smoke stacks just supports.
So is this a fantasy model or a copy of a real tug? I need your expertise to solve this question .

Very nice Bestie. You are right, you will receive an answer probably from several here as to
it's exact kind and history.

That is not a real vessel but looks to be a miss match of a few things.  The hull is a Lloydsman whilst the mast, funnel lifeboat davits etc. are off a billings Zwart Zee.

The accommodation looks a little like the Salvage tug Leopard, but most certainly has a German style of the early 1970's to it.

Lovely looking model!
