Rick @ Scale Model Castings is in the process of building up his new line of tug parts in the scale you're looking for & isn't shy when it comes to tooling new fittings if he thinks they'll sell. He's offering 20% off through Oct 19th so best contact him today.

Also Harbor Models should have 1/48 scale fittings as well.

Scale Shipyard has tug fittings in that section of the catalog. Have a few and as ohters mentioned, some of the warship general fittings will work as well. Just depends on what parts you are looking for. Ameii might have a few as well....

As I mentioned above, send Rick has no problem tooling a new fitting if he thinks there's a market. He's interested in building up his new tug offering so send him your ideas.

I need to update my website, I have a ton of new fittings. When I say "modern" I mean WWII and after. I dont go for anything older right now.
