new from Dean Marine

Dear Modellers
I thought that you might like more news from the edge of the world near Farcet and to let you
know the latest news from DEANS MARINE.
A third new addition to the range that have been released at the DEANS MARINE open days on
the 7-8-9th September.
We are playing catch up at the moment, with the staff problems, ill health and retirements, plus
the new warehouse extensions, we have fallen behind with new releases and additions. Now
training progressing we hope to get back on stream with lots of new and interesting models and

Berthing Tug YARRA
Scale 1/48
Length 580mm
Beam 185mm

The model is based on a glassfibre hull with fender strips, freeing ports, and port detail moulded into the
hull. The main superstructure is also a detailed glass fibre moulding with ladder recesses part of the
Computer generated plastic for the main deck and superstructure is LASER CUT from 1.5mm HIPs plastic
sheet for fast assembly, also included is plastic printed in 6 colours and is used for fine detail and finishing
on the superstructure to give quick and crisp assembly.
A full set of fittings in cast light alloy and resine give the finishing touch to the model adding the vital clutter
that is so much part of this attractive and powerful tug with so much appeal.
A full set of waterslide decals for the colour full markings and computer cut cast vinyl name decals.
As in all of the Deans kits a set of running gear is included, consisting of the propshafts, cast metal props
and Shrouded propeller ducts and tiller arms
A full instructions keyed to a FULL SIZE plan with embedded colour pictures to assist in the construction of
the model, plus a c/d of approx 200 pictures of the build of the first kit.
Painting instructions are part of the construction notes with tips for using car spray ACRYLIC paint which
gives a fast and hard wearing finish.

Yarra is a standard 90ft twin screw berthing tug. She was built by Carrington slipways ltd Tomago N.S.W,
She was designed by Barnes & Fleck Pty Ltd Naval architects.
Between 1972 & 1980 14 of these small powerful berthing tugs were constructed for service on the
Australian coast. They specialize in assisting berthing operations of large bulk carriers, hence they are
claimed to be the two most powerful engines in the smallest hull.
There are many variations in the basic design, some with no drop in the bulwarks, different superstructure
etc as they are modified at the design stage to fit various purposes

Now on release for first run kits 195.00 (first 20 only)
