Or in English, "Naval Modelisms".

There's a 36" version too.

The guy who built that tug has a long thread on RCU with the build details. He sent the plans to MR Aerosdesign to enlarge them and then cut a laser kit. You can get a laser cut kit from Martin.

The guy who built this tug has even bigger ones. He also has a lake in his backyard, and a dock, and ..............

I have the plans for the original 85' Army ST to 1/48th scale. 13 sheets of the plans for the real, full size one as originally designed, complete with the machine guns and mounts on the pilothouse roof, if you want to build the WW II military version. Detail sheets are to larger scales but with the full size measurements on them. Lots of these tugs were sold surplus after the war and some are still in use today. Angels Gate in LA, for example. Price is $37 bucks. Photos of a 1/32 scale military version included. See my website at http://modelplans.steamboats.org/

And John, those are original builder's plans, not dumbed-down model plans, right?

I was planning a 50" to 63" unit....I need something to run those 90mm props on .
Im thinking the prop would be to small for a 63" unit,50" yeah maybe ..but 56" i think puts me in 1/18 scale.

Tom ..any link to that build.

After seeing the model built It looks alot better than the plan's suggest.
