San Marcos, California-based SD Model Makers delivered three replica models of a 100-foot tractor tug to Nichols Brothers Boat Builders of Freeland, Wash. The 24-inch scale model ship replicated the Nichols Brothers lasts build -- the second of two new 100' x 40' Z-drive ship assist tractor tugs. The tugs are the most technically and environmentally advanced equipment available.


"SD Model Makers has provided Nichols with a fine-crafted model of our tractor tug. The attention to detail has captured the vessels complexity and characteristics. Using this model at our future tradeshows will illustrate to potential customers the vessels aspects and features. Captain Brad and his team were very accommodating and were a pleasure to work with," said Lacey Greene, Sales and Marketing Representative of Nichols Brothers Boat Builders.
 


SD Model Makers owner, Captain Brad Poulos explained, "We specialize in making museum quality replica ship models. We have built scale ship models of all types of workboats -- container ships, tug boats, LNG carriers, OSVs - even offshore oil platforms. Customers use them as gifts, office displays or trade show exhibits in any size or scale for ship builders, boat yards and vessel owners. This is a core competency of our business."
