[QUOTE=Kmot;15479514]I always thought "truckable push tug" was the correct nomenclature and "Springer" was a made up name because they attached door springs to the push knees.

Truckable is the correct termanology for a build like this. The Springers are called such for the persons who came up with the design and model concept for the NW R/C Shipmodelers ( home of the original idea)--Dave and John Springer ( father and son ). Idea to be able to make a simple yet affordable model for a beginner with limited skills and budget.
