The model is built out of wood and a Sarik wood pack is available to assist the more tedious parts of construction like cutting the frames. Tugs are always popular models and this plan will be of interest to many. To help with the construction, the Laser Cut Wood Pack, which includes the frames, deck and wheelhouses.

The laser cut wood parts available for this model will enable the builder to construct the main hull easily and quickly although experience would be required for the planking of the hull (the materials for planking are not included in the Laser Cut Wood Pack. Likewise the detailed fittings and plastic parts for the superstructure are not included). It was found useful to cut a number of 25 mm x 25 mm triangles of 12 mm balsa for assembly of the superstructure (again not included in the Laser Cut Wood Pack).
What’s in a Short Kit? – A short kit usually contains, where available, the plan, the laser/CNC cut wood pack, additional wood pack, canopy, cowl or any other available Glass Fibre or plastic moulded items.
What’s in a Laser or CNC Cut Wood Pack? – A CNC or laser cut wood pack contains most, if not all, of the intricately shaped parts shown on the plan, which would be difficult or time-consuming to cut out by hand. It does not contain any sheet or strip wood, which you will need to buy separately. Alternatively, you can purchase an Additional Wood Pack, if available. Our Laser or CNC Cut Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and lite ply and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheets.
