Our Carol Moran kit in Moran Towing Livery

The Carol Moran operated in the New York area from teh 1940's until destroyed by fire in the late 1980's by the famous Moran Towing and Transportation Company.  During that time, she moved everything from garbage scows to Ocean Liners. Our 1/4" to the foot model is large enough to do some serious pushing of her own when fitted with an appropriate motor, and yet small enough to carry easily and fit in a car.  This is the perfect model when you just want to get in a pleasant day of Sunday boating without a lot of drama.  The hull features molded side rail and bulwarks.

A25 Modern Container Ship 1/96

70 3/4"

10 3/8"

$ 389.00

This hull is made from plans for the Mexican Lines Container Ship ‘ Cerita’. The hull master was built for us by her then serving chief engineer. This hull features a flush deck midship area with a raised quarterdeck and focsle area. Below the waterline she features the large bulbous bow and faired single shaft exit.

A set of arrangement plans come with this hull.

With todays huge container ships this would be considered a moderate sized ship which makes for a rather handy sized model for R/C operations. A couple of these hulls have been modified into US Navy Oilers.
