Very nice Sea Monkey and thank you for sharing a real eye-opener. Now I can
rest easier that my model tugs are not really too big. I am going to share this
with my list, credit to you and our Model Tug Forum, because it really is a very
beautiful classic model indeed.

Do you have any information about the who, what, when, and where? We all
know the how.

I think it was built for a trade show for/by Concordia, the Dutch ship designers.
They normally build barges and have only recently designed a few pusher tugs.

So if its going in a 20' TEU then it looks to be 15-18' long and maybe 7-7.5' wide.

If its a 40 footer then there could be a barge in there as well!

I just cannot be bothered taking the forklift to the pond these days so will not be ordering one of these.

I followed your tips FsASTSyd1. I searched the Internet for over 3 hours and couldn't
find any more than this. I'm not going to South America to look further so here is all
of my findings, Michael.

Concordia place the new model of the pusher Parsifal ( scale 1:10 )
which is now built in south America, this model is showed to the public.

Hi Michael, that's all I could find as well. Funny that they would put the couple of photos in their news section without a few comments on either the model or the real tug/pusher/ship, whatever they want to call it. Although it was last year one might have expected a little more information to be around, after all most companies would have been quite proud of producing or designing the model let alone the full size.
Best regards
