    Default 81’ Great Lakes Towing Co. Tug "Indiana"

    For the first time here, a full hull non-N scale display model of the popular Great Lakes Towing Company’s 81-foot tug is now available. The model is nine inches long—the maximum I can print 3D with my current generation of printers—or about 108:1 scale.


    Of course, full hull and waterline models are available in N and Z scale. The N and Z models are available with or without stands. Without stands they can be loads on freight cars or laid up on a cradle in a boatyard. In N scale the tugs are 6” (154 mm) long; in Z scale they are 4.4” (112 mm) long.


    The Indiana is a member of a GLT class dating back to the 1930s. Fifteen of the class have been recently refurbished.

Towing Company services include ship assist, cargo transportation and logistics, ice breaking, and emergency assistance of every kind of vessel, barge, and marine structure.
