We were inspired to develop this kit after viewing a photograph we took of the tug “Cadet” resting in a Maine port on a cold winter day. The photo offered us a very limited view of the vessel but what a beauty.
The actual “Cadet” has a length of 40’, smoke stack coming up through the pilot house, and a beautiful wood door and entry off the rear of the engine room.
Our kit is 53’ long, free standing smoke stack, and a vent where their door is.
Our good friend George Barrett from Sheepscot Models provided us with the information on the actual Cadet.
CADET, built 1936, Kennebunkport, Maine, by documentation Specs; 12/8 – 38.2 x 11.2 x 4.6. 40’ LOA.
It is truly a classic vessel and easily inspired us to come up with this kit that has some similarities.
