AMERICAN BEAUTY PUSH-BOAT - Static Or R/C
 

AMERICAN BEAUTY - Here is your chance to try your hand at being a push-boat captain. But just so you know what you are up against. The American Beauty built by St. Louis Ships for Argi-Trans Services measures 170 feet in length, with a beam of 45 feet, and requires 9 feet of water when fully loaded with fuel. Powered by twin 2500 h.p. diesel engines turning two 8 ft. diameter propellers, she typically moves a tow of 20-25 barges each being approximately 200 feet long by 35 feet wide at speeds of 4 to 9 miles per hour. That is almost 4 acres of barges! Fortunately as modelers, we have life a little easier. The Dumas kit of the American Beauty starts off with an ABS plastic hull. The construction of the superstructure is accomplished through the use of precisely die-cut birch and mahogany plywoods.

To power the American Beauty, we recommend two Dumas #2004 or #2005 electric motors and running hardware kit #2339. The running hardware is authentic in every detail right down to the twin kort nozzles. Twin forward control rudders and four flanking rudders are included to give you the maneuverability necessary to control your push- boat. Other options include an 81 piece deck hardware kit #2104, which supplies all the detail castings to give her those finishing touches.
 


The paint sets for these kits are historically accurate colors that have been specially formulated for model ships. They are high quality acrylic based paints that can be thinned with water, thinner or alcohol. They clean up easily with water, making them ideal for airbrush use. Brushed or sprayed, paints dry flat with good grain structure and a smooth finish. The colors contained in each paint set are based on the colors shown in the picture of the model. 1 oz. bottles
