Page 1 of 3

Joffre ~ Tyne Tug


Joffre was built in 1916 by the Androssan Dry Dock & Shipping Co. She was owned throughout her career by Lawson-Batey Tugs Ltd. of Newcastle on Tyne. Specifically built for the coastal towing business her gross tonnage was 260, with an engine power of 1,140 i.h.p. this was quite a high power for ships of her day. Fitted with two sets of towing hooks, an unusual feature for tugs of her size, the after one was used for towing lighters on the river Tyne.
Model has a plain GRP hull with CNC cut superstructure and deck, screen printed overlays and over 300 cast white metal fittings, including the ships crew and the ships dog.To complete the kit, all the necessary timber, cordage and vacuum formed lifeboats are supplied. As the Joffre saw service through two world wars it gives scope for additional detailing and a wartime paint scheme.

North Light ~ Clyde Puffer:


This is a representative model of a typical small coaster from the Western Isles of Scotland, known to all ship lovers as a 'Clyde Puffer'. The GRP hull carries full external detail, riveting, strakes etc.
Kit contains all necessary mouldings, printed overlays, CNC cut wood parts, drawings and diagrams for assembly. There are over 200 white metal fittings and it is in their authenticity and feel that the charm of this finished model shows. Awarded a gold medal at the Nuremburg Toy Fair of 1984 it was a first for any British kit manufacturer and a first for any marine model kit from around the world. This kit also fills a corner for the static modeller looking for a cased model that is a little different. Crew member figures are included.

Marie Felling ~ Harbour Tug:


The Marie Felling was built by Earls of Hall and launched in 1928. Designed by the same team as the Imara, she was a Crown Colony Contracts vessel and judging by the margin notes of the contract, gave rise to the many improvements incorporated in the later Imara, especially with regard to accommodation. Both were designed for the same type of harbour work. From the deck layout up, the Marie Felling is an unusual and appealing vessel. From the single lifeboat carried cross ship on the sub deck atop the forward saloon and the raised bridge on stilts, not to mention the cross passage through the single superstructure, the massive plain funnel and open funnel deck all combine to give this vessel a unique charm.
Model hull is fully detailed, as is the two part superstructure and funnel. All these parts are moulded in GRP. Deck and bridge are ply, with a printed ply overlay. Fittings are cast white metal. The superstructure is easily removable to allow easy access to the hull making this model ideal for steam propulsion. The kit is available in either single or twin screw versions.

S.S. Talacre ~ Single Hatch Coaster:


The SS Talacre is a typical single hatch coaster used in the coal trade of a type that was found by the hundreds around the coast of the U.K. in the golden era of steam. Designed for Point of Ayr Collieries by Crichton, Thompson & Co Ltd., of London she was built by Crabtree &Co., of Great Yarmouth in 1917. Talacre was named after a small village near the colliery. Talacre was finally scraped in 1959 by the Hammond Lane Foundry in Dublin. Realism leaps out of the completed model, as if a turn of a valve will start the anchor windlass or the cargo winch clattering away and the lagged steam pipes to begin steaming and drying out.
The hull is of GRP fully detailed on the exterior with plating, double riveting and strakes. The whole package is complete with CNC cut plywood, printed overlays, funnel material, hatch cover, moulded ships boats, mast and boom material, cargo material, rigging cord, transfers, detailed drawings and instruction book, crew members and all cast white metal fittings to complete.
