Scale Model Tugs is an enlargement and substantial revision of the tug material which appeared in the author’s previous book Scale Model Tugs & Trawlers (Nexus Special Interests, 1999). Illustrated with original photographs and plans, it has been compiled from a wealth of practical experience and material gathered by experienced professional ship modeller Tom Gorman.

Tom Gorman has spent a lifetime working with small vessels out of Hull and Grimsby on the east coast of England and knows every rivet and bolt of their structure. His enviable reputation as a maritime modeller is the result of numerous medals from craft and model fairs, and his numerous commissions as a modeller.
