Hello boys n' girls,

I'm looking for photos and general information of the Motorflote push tug, as described in Model Boats magazine, December 1985. I have the build article and the plans from the magazine.

If you've built one, I'd like to see photos of it please, and of the full size one if possible.

All information gratefully received.

Rich

Hang in there Rich, someone here will have the info you need for your Motorflote push tug.
This is from www.RCGroups.com . I looked around and couldn't find any more info on your tug.

Thanks Michael,

I've hunted through RCGroups, but to no avail...no Motorflote photos to be seen anywhere. It seems that the things are as rare as hen's teeth.
I guess I'll be applying a large spoonful of ''modellers licence'' in my build.

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated.
