It is a Hegi Fairplay V kit with the following modifications, working radar, hiab crane, twin water cannons, two grappling hooks for rescuing stranded boats, and a bespoke brass steerable kort nozzle with a 65mm prop. Running 6v with an old Ripmax orbit 805 motor direct drive. Lights and engine sound to.

Looks like it might be around 20 inches or so long?

Very nice work. I especially like how the deck crew fit into their tasks.
Almost real if I were taking some "Drone" shots of your Fairplay tug.

Thanks for sharing,
Michael
