Despatch No 9, is a model of a US diesel river tug. This particular model is made by Lindberg (still available), first made by Pyro in the 1950’s. She is powered by a Computer Printer motor, multi pole, and uses 5 pen cells. Endurance about 1 1/2 hours. Radio from a Tamiya 1/10th Scale Car series called Tamtech. I built her in the late seventies, finshed her in the eighties, so she is a venerable old lady. She has weathered several storms that sunk larger boats.
