Welcome Fenwick
Do a search for Smit Nederland on here - should show a number of builds - a fairly popular model. Also have a look on the Model Boat Mayhem site and RC Groups. Any club nearby? Great source of info available.

Hello Fenwick. . .good to see you here on the Forum. Just follow Mike's suggestions
and you will find lots of help. You will discover that tugboats have a spirit that will

Hi Fenwick and welcome to the forum.  Built the Smit Ned many years ago.  Have made a few mods to it.  Working winch, rotating radar, brass mast, (the wood one with the kit doesn't take too kindly to the odd bump)  Any help I can be just ask.
