A late 19th century to early 20th century sea-going tug, the Sanson was designed to push trans-Atlantic giants. Her steam engine produced up to 2,000 HP, allowing her to reach speeds of up to 14 knots. Artesania Latina's kit features pre-cut frames, limewood and African walnut double planking plus a host of life-like fittings to outfit your model just like the real tug. Individual strips for deck and cabin planking, pre-carved life boats, clear acetate windows, wooden capstan, three-bladed propeller and cotton rigging for halyards, shrouds and lashing lines are supplied. Other details include brass wire, chain, pulleys, drums, winches, lights and turnbuckles, white metal ladders, hoses, anchors, davits, bits, cog and gear wheels. Full sized plans, easy instructions with coordinating color photos allow trouble-free assembly.
Please note: Though this kit was designed as a static model it can be modified to be radio control. Requires moderate to advanced building skills to modify this kit to be radio control.
