Paddle tug hull and plan now available
« on: May 20, 2012, 08:11:01 »
Hi everyone, we now have a new GRP hull available of the paddle tug Volcano at 1/48th scale. The hull has plating detail, bulwarks, wash ports, hawsers and rubbing strakes moulded in and even a flange on the inside of the hull to mount the deck!!!!

The hull is 37 1/4" long and 6 3/4" beam and is priced at 55 plus 10 shipping to the UK mainland, international shipping at cost.

The pictures below really don't do this hull justice......

For more info call 01633 431010 or email mmbshop@hotmail.com
