Excellent condition and near mint, Artesania Latina 'AMSTERDAM TUG' RC ocean going vessel 1/50 scale model kit. This kit is 100% complete, UNBUILT, UNSTARTED . One peice ABS hull. Completed model is an impressive 42" long and 24" high. Prop, stuffing box, rudder, and metal fittings are included. These are very rare to find and truely magnificent to see completed. This is being sold AS IS and all efforts are made to be as exact in the condition and description as possible.
Extra!!!!! I am including a new Johnson 12V 600 size motor and motor capacitors form Subconcepts and a Graupner coupler as well as a Tamaya speed controller. All at not extra charge. See the photos.
The real Amsterdam tugboat was built at the Johan Alkers Shipyard in Hamburg, Germany in 1971. It was specially built to handle and serve very large ships and super tankers of this modern age. Three other sister-ships where built, called Malabar, Tenace and Centour, and these are serving at this moment with the French navy.
This is an RC-ready, very large scale assembly kit of a popular ocean-goin tugboat. Very sturdy construction materials, designed for easy access to any RC gear and motor. Kit does not contain any radio control gear nor does it have any recommended RC installations. Experience neccessary.
