SCALE 1/3 in. to 1 ft.
Drawn by Philip Connolly
It is not proposed to go into complete constructional detail, since this class of model is one that would normally be undertaken by builders with at least some experience.
The superstructure breaks down into a series of boxes and helpful sketches are included on the plan.
The ship was built by Philip & Son Ltd. of Dartmouth, who have built a number of tugs for the Sun fleet The accommodation in Sun XXI includes double bunks for the four crew aft, and two officers' and a chief engineer's cabin forward. The decor throughout is light sycamore linings and mahogany furniture. Lighting, heating and cooking is all electric.
On deck (which need not be used by the crew in heavy weather) she carries twin 12in. tow hooks, the cables passing over the towbows over the engine room skylight and fitted only to the casing, i.e. not to the gunwales, a considerable advantage in a model. She carries one pulling boat on the starboard side and an inflatable liferaft to port, and the rest of her deck fittings are reasonably conventional. Apart from unhooking one forestay there is nothing to prevent the entire superstructure lifting off as one piece in a model, a fact which influenced our choice of this particular tug as a scale subject.
