Bellevue Regatta held annually, the first weekend of June.

More coverage on RCgroups.

And thank you ship spotters for the HRphotos that serve as great referances for modelers.

Scale Models / SDM Tug 1:48
« on: June 19, 2008, 06:12:09 AM »
Back in August 2006, I started a scratch build of an SDM tug.
I had to work up my own line drawings from the few graphics and images that were available at the time. Despite the fact that the Ramon Casas and the Salvador Dali had just recently been launched, the members of Shipspotters had some wonderful images posted of the the two SDM MkII tugs.

My 1/48 scale model benifitted greatly from the images posted here on Shipspotting... Thank you..

I try to keep track of a couple of threads on SubPirates, but I maintain a higher presence on RCgroups.

When I get around to my Might Servant 3 build I might post a bit more on SubPirates... The MS3 is just a bit more submarine like... Unfortunately too much so right now.

I have found Shipspotting an invaluable tool for photo referances for my model builds.

You are welcome to start a thread and post models at either - for Static Models

Set up by Fine Scale Modeler Magazine - for Radio control models

At RC groups, we have made great efforts to create a comprehensive forum for sharing build ups, Kit reviews, scratch builds, help and support for the  RC model ship enthusiast.

However you will still have to come to shipspotting for the
awsome phographic referances that everyone here has created.


I understand that a salvage contract has been signed and work is underway to refloat the Mighty Servant 3.

 After refloating, a detailed survey will be done, which will be decisive regarding the future of the MS3.

Unless you want something big, and RC,
The only tugs I can recall seeing are the
Revell Smit Frankrijk, Revell Harbour Tug Boat 5207'
 A Heller Smit Rotterdam, and the Lindberg Harbor Tug.

The Lindberg is a small 1/82nd scale 1950s style tug boat.

Everything else is pretty big and made for pond running.
Harbor Models has a good selection. If this scale interests you, browse their website, and see what you can find available locally.

I have been searching a couple years for plans of the Mighty Servant 3 so that I could build an RC model of one of these semi submersible ships. It is sad to see her in such circumstances. Thank you for sharing the images "2nd Mate".

My estimates place the tip of that crane 66.8 meters above the bottom of the keel.

Can anyone verify whether the crane is still visible above the ocean surface?

(can someone fix my Nic-name? add an "i"?)
