The kit is made by Lindberg.

The scale is questionable.
I measured it with an HO scale ruler and the hull works out to 85 1/2 feet which is about right for an east coast harbor tug.
The men that come with the kit measure 8'6" tall.
The doors on the cabin measure 5' 7"

The men wouldn't even be able to stand up straight in the cabin.
Even though something is out of wack with the scale on the kit, I think it looks OK for HO scale.
If anything maybe a tiny bit big.

Here's a picture with the guy from the kit and an HO scale guy.
