This review is from: Revell Harbour Tug Boat (Toy) I have modeled this kit several times, and have found it to be a very Detailed and accurate kit of a Harbor tug. The Long beach a Tug in California is one of these tugs and the model matches very well to her. The only short falls in the this kit. are the crew could use to be reworked. the figures are nicely detailed but are a little out of scale. and a tug usually has more than three hands on them. The life boat is a nice detailed part but most tugs in the late 40’s had a double ended boat. not a boat with a square stern. by the 60’s most of these boats were removed to make deck space and only a co2 life raft was carried. In fact working with photos, you can actually model this tug as it was built as per the kit. or add and remove parts to show these tugs at different stages of their careers. on my last model of this tug I removed the after mast, life boat, davits. added a flag staff and modeled her with Moran tug colors on her. Unlike one reviewer claimed. the model is NOT deceiving, and is fact worth every nickle. It is an excellent kit of a harbor tug. and a great addition to any maritime collection. I in fact intend to build another of this kit. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 15 of 15 people found the following review helpful Worth it for a fun build, July 30, 2012 By Trevor C. Morgan (Holladay, UT, USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Revell Harbour Tug Boat (Toy) This is the first model I’ve built for years. I haven’t built any kind of model for about 20 years or so. I thought it was going to be bigger than it actually is. The dimensions that are shown in the information seem to be corresponding with the box, not the model. The model is maybe 6 inches in length, not the 13 that it states below. This makes it a bit challenging to clean the model parts and sand them down. I’ve had to build up a couple spots where I took too much off but it’s not a big deal, just time consuming. I noticed that the figures have bell-bottoms on. I looked at the bottom of the hull and noticed that the mold was made in the early 70’s. They could definitely update it. Some of the pieces also had some pits in them and some pieces missing. Some of the instrucions don’t exaclty match up either. Besides that, it is fun so far building it. I’ll put up a picture of the finished product when I’m done. Try not to laugh too hard, it’s been a very long time since I put a model together. I think I was 9 when I put one together last time. This is a whole new experience for me but a fun one at that. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 20 of 23 people found the following review helpful very realistic, August 18, 2009 By Charles Reid – = Durability: = Fun: = Educational: Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
