just starting to work our way through the site and WOW ! well done ! Seeing the standard of modelling here compared to what we produce almost makes us want to give up, we'll never get that good !

Keep up the wonderful work guys !

I measured it with an HO scale ruler and the haul 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.

Dave, Could be O scale. I had up til last year, a 1945 45' Tugboat. My friend had a 60 foot that was configured exactly like this. Od course that makes the guy under 5' ;)
