About the model

P S Reliant
Steam Paddle Tug, Formerly OLD TRAFFORD.

Prototype history (click)
This super detailed hull is a model for all those who love paddlers. The steam paddle tug RELIANT was built in 1907 as the P.S. OLD TRAFFORD, being named after an area near to the Manchester Ship Canal where she spent the early years of her working life, being sold for further use as a harbour tug at Seaham.
Our hull features all representative plate lines, sponsor support pads, panama ports, hawse pipe holes and scrolls, and the stern rubbing strake all moulded in.
Each hull is supplied complete with comprehensive full-size two sheet plans by David MacGregor, showing details of her appearance and include details of her previous appearance as OLD TRAFFORD.
This actual ship was on display in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich for many years. More suited to a builder of some experience.
