Tugboat Model Kit - Toad
Built for my Grandson who loves it. Launched in the Hudson River,
and it brought back childhood memories of the book of Scuffy The
Tugboat. Our Tug sails with a tether.
I found the instructions to be complete and easy to follow. I especially liked the fact there were patterns (to scale) for certain parts. This took a lot of guess work out of the build. Another feature I like is the propeller can be removed and replaced depending on how you want to use the model. Highly recommend this as a first build, or just a fun build with a child or grandchild.
This was fun to make. Most pre-teens would need guidance from an adult at certain points. I am pleased with the result and had a great time with the construction.
Bought this kit to assemble with my 3 year old grandson. He did a great job sanding and painting surprising actually. I was skeptical of the rubber airplane propulsion boy was I wrong. It worked well and ran just long enough to keep his attention. I’m looking at the power boat as a next project. Well designed and easy kit
