Discover the Atlantic, wooden and plastic model of this tugboat whose design and parts are manufactured in Spain, and whose hull in high quality ABS is manufactured in France. It is a faithful replica of the tugboats of the 70s and 80s.
It was an offshore tug, it was not working at the ports, so it was prepared to withstand the most adverse weather conditions. All its structure was thought to be a stable boat in the water and very manageable, with the aim of being able to tow in open waters to large ships such as oil tankers or cruisers.
Tugs, in general, are born in the nineteenth century, navigation experienced a great revolution, the main factor being the implementation of mechanical propulsion. As a consequence, ships gradually increase their size and displacement, losing ease in manoeuvring in docks and ports in the process.
Build your 1:50 scale model of the Atlantic, a classic tall tugboat. The Atlantic modelling kit contains parts of board cut by high precision laser, noble wood, gravure, brass and cast iron: it has numerous details in chemical cut (photo-etched) to be more faithful to the original ship.
Likewise, the hull of the Atlantic tugboat is made of high quality ABS so it can easily be converted into an R / C model as it is more resistant and waterproof. Without forgetting that its interior is ready for the installation of the electrical system (not included). The cannons to launch water are designed to be usable (mechanism not included).
For the assembly you can follow our complete multimedia guide with 3D renders and images, step-by-step and in full colour on DVD format. The kit does not include printed instructions.
