Discover the Sanson, a wooden model kit of this tug from the 1930s. Equipped with a powerful 2000 horsepower steam boiler, it could develop a speed of 14 knots while coming to the rescue of much larger ships. Guided by our detailed step by step instructions you can complete your model of this impressive vessel.

Halfway through the nineteenth century, sailing experienced a great revolution, mainly due to the implantation of mechanical propulsion. As a consequence, vessels are gradually increased their size and movement. In the process they lost the ease with which they used to maneuver in harbors. Thus the tug was born, a new type of ship of small tonnage and shallow draft but with more than enough driving force and maneuverability to assist ships much larger than themselves.

Build your 1/50 scale model of the Sanson, a classic tug for high-seas towage. Its construction system using false keel and frames brings the assembly of your model closer to the construction of the actual ship. The model includes laser cut board pieces, hardwood, brass, die-cast and fabric. For the assembly you can follow our complete full-color step by step guide in 4 languages, accompanied by real-scale drawings of the ship.
