I'm looking for an HO scale tugboat. Plastic prefered, but a wood kit would be ok. I don't want a waterline model.
I have one that I bought half built in a plastic bag. I think it's a Lindburg kit. It looks too big.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Here is one that has a full detail or waterline option. Scroll down the page to "West Coast Tug Columbia".  It is a nice price for the details that come with it.

There are others on the page as well. It is kinda hard to find the ones that dont come in a waterline form.

Thanks. That one isn't the type of tug that I'm looking for. I'm thinking more like something that B&O or Pennsylvania RR would use.

I know this is a LATE reply, but this might be nice if you have not yet found one:

There's one more under the plastic section.

Thanks. I did see that. I ended up using 3 tugboat kits by Lindberg.




I took pictures while I was building them and there are pictures of my unfinished diorama on my Fotki page.

The Linberg tug hull is Ho Scale, the super structure is actually more 1/72 scale. the hull can be used, and a new superstructure can be built to scale. I have two I am working on tight now. one has been converted into a Navy YTB tug, and the second has been cut in half with a two section added a new deck cut out of 40 thousand plastic sheet and is being converted into a 1912 era British steam tug.

Tincan, which Lindberg tug do you refer to? They made two different tugs. The Coast Guard tug is just about HO scale all over.
