Presented is our newest offering which more than ever
achieves the scratch built museum quality only a master model maker can attain. The model is built using the
much desired plank on bulkhead method one plank at a time, and then finished in the vessel's original colors with varnished deck,
flat black hull and red bottom paint. The deck is detailed in hand laid planking which looks like teak. All
the stanchions and search light are custom made in brass, and exactly duplicate what was used on the real vessels
of that era. Special pains were taken with this project to fully replicate the details of the original BROOKLYN.
This is a near museum quality model, at an unrealistically low
price. If you've been browsing on the internet, you will be hard pressed to find something that represents boats that
are North American in design, and are executed as finely overall. You can spend a lot more money for no better a
model than this one, or others is our line, and get the same satisfaction.

standard American harbor tug was developed around the end of the Civil War and is characterized by a narrow hull that is also
round-bilged and deep. Its pilot house sits forward of a single stack and high above the deck to permit the operator to see
around large loads. Tugs have been called "housings for engines" because their work, whether it's maneuvering ships around
berths or towing heavily laden barges upriver, requires large, powerful engines.
Built in 1910, the harbor tug Brooklyn
was designed and built by William Cramp and Sons Ship and Engine Building Company at Philadelphia, PA, in 1910. She was owned
by the New York Dock Co. for lease to the Pennsylvania Railroad Company.
She was one of many railroad tugs, designed to transfer railroad cars from one side of New York to
the other on barges known as car floats. Railroad tugs almost always towed barges alongside, with one car floating on each
side, hence the heavy guard strakes along their sides. Railroad tugs were characterized by long houses because there was no
need of a towing machine aft.
Built of steel, it was typical of the large harbor tugs found in major
American ports at the time. The Brooklyn measured 105 feet long overall, with a 24 foot molded beam and 15 feet 1
