You could build an ice breaking tug model. I think Ron Burchett offers a nice hull.

I built this ice breaking tug many years ago. It was posted here from a photo published on Flicker I think and not mentioned who it was from.

Build in new Zealand and is a hybridised Maersk Master with icebreaking bow, twin 5 bladed props and big engines. Was 1400mm x 280mm from Memory.
Sold it, but now wished I had not as it might be a cold winter here in New Zealand. very nice model to sail and looked good even just sitting there. Immensly powerful but good engines and controllers made her a pussy cat.

Might dig out some other photos of her.
