1/48 George W. Washburn Tugboat Kit, 30"

Overview

The George W. Washburn was launched in 1890 by the Cornell Steamboat Company to move barges and cargo like stones, sand, and bricks up and down the Hudson River between Albany and New York City. She was, during her early years, considered the fastest tug on the Hudson River. Since she took on paying passengers, her appearance was kept up. It was said that a Cornell Steamboat could be noticed from a great distance by the yellow and black color of the smoke stacks. Sad to say, however, that the George W. Washburn and the Cornell Steamboat Company are no longer around today.

Add (DUM2373) Running Hardware to make this an RC boat.
