The US Navy Ocean Fleet Tug „Powhatan Class“ is now available in 1:144 scale. The kit is RC ready to be operated through twin propellers, working rudders and a bow thruster. The parts are derived from the 1:200 scale model but are adapted to 1:144 scale with adapted wall sizes etc.

Details Apache fleet tug, Hull (1:144, RC)
My larger size GillJet drive (azimuth thruster / pump jet / invisible Schottel drive) is available for larger RC boats, using a 20mm impeller drive that can rotate 360 degrees vertically to provide both propulsion and control: GillJet / azimuth thruster, with 20mm impeller for
In addition to my 1:200 scale version as a radio controlled model, a 1:350 version as a static dispay model is available, too, of my Lewek Kea anchor handling tug.

The model comes in two parts, as it is derived from the RC model, and is printed in resin. Lewek Kea (1:350, static model)
Finally, my new model is available: The "Lewek Kea", a 48m Anchor Handling Tug (AHT) in 1:200 scale.

The model consists of four sets of prints:
- hull
- superstructure
- details in nylon
- details in resin

All parts are available through Shapeways under the following link:

The model can be equipped for radio control (RC) via four channels: two 16mm props directly driven via N20 motors each in kort nozzles, twin rudders and a bow thruster. Additional function can be added. Parts needed to build a static display model are included, too. A display stand will be available shortly.

The four sets of prints add up to 182.26 EUR.
My model of the UAE auxiliary vessel A61 Rmah and her sister ship A62 Alfaq are now available as static display models in 1:350 and 1:400 scale.

The models come printed in one piece, in a detailed and smooth resin print. Painting is pretty straightforward, and they can be refined by adding a 1:400 scale railing if desired.

To add to the drag anchor, a Yokohama Fender is now available, too: Yokohama Fender (1:200)
Finally time to make some equipment to outfit my models with things to transport, for now an 8 ton offshore drag anchor - 8 ton offshore anchor (1:200)
the 10 ton crane is also available without base - 10-ton crane (1:200)
I made a new crane available as a detail: 10-ton crane with socket (1:200)
To complete the Thetis class model (Klasse 420, German navy submarine hunter, later Greek navy gunboat), I added a set of static propellers for those who do not want to build an RC model but a model for static display: Thetis / Najade, propellers static model (1:200)
My AHTS Granit is now available as a static model in 1:350 scale after a request I had: AHTS Granit, Complete model (1:350)
small boat crane (hydraulic, 1:200 scale)
- small modern ship crane (1:200)
Bofors 40mm single barrel modern gun - Bofors 40 mm L/60 Mk gun (1:200)
3 ton ship crane derived from my coastal transport vessel - 3 to ship crane, movable, 1:200 scale
I added another inflatable / RHIB to the detail section Classic RHIB, with outboard engine (1:200)
Another detail to complete your models: A typical anchor winch you find on a small vessel. Anchor Winch for small vessels (1:200)
Another RHIB, a simpler design but slightly larger - RHIB with engine (1:200)
1:200 RHIB with cross beam and outboard engine. RHIB with beam and outboard engine (1:200)
I am making the different details available individually, as some of you have requested. First part: A RHIB without outboard engine in 1:200 scale. RHIB, no outboard engine (1:200)
Azimuth thruster with 13mm props
Micro_Boat_Hobby @sam_snijder sorry, apparently Shapeways cannot digest hyphens and such. The motors run wet, not “wetâ :-)
Micro_Boat_Hobby @sam_snijder Hi Sam, the motors run, intact, “wet”, i.e. they are not waterproof and the drive pods are not suitable for salt water conditions. I have been running my own model regularly for two years now without problems. What’s needed is to wash the motors after running the model with clean water
My Thetis Class is now available in 1:100 with reduced wall thickness and a hull consisting of three parts to ensure the lowest possible price. I hope to offer some better details and the Najade superstructure in the near future, too.

The model is set up for RC operation with twin shafts (M2, 200mm long, on 3-bladed Raboesch props) driven by two RE 280 motors (mounts are part of the hull).

The model consists of five sets of prints:
My model of the Thetis Class (class 420) ASW crafts of the German navy (later gunboats with the Greek navy) finally took shape - painted and RC ready. I hope to post better photos from the first RC operations on the pond soon. All parts are available as usual: Thetis / Najade, Hull (1:200, RC)
