Description

Caldercraft Resolve

Due to the depletion of the naval tug fleet during the 1914 – 1918 war, the Royal Navy decided to replace the older tugs with several classes of purpose built naval tugs. Of these, the largest and most powerful was the ‘Resolve’ class. There was a total of six built between 1917 and 1919. The Resolve tugs were fitted with a quick firing 12pdr gun for defence when on convoy duty or coastal tows during war time. Resolve tugs remained in the Royal Navy until 1950 when the were sold to messers James Scott and Co. Ltd. for breaking up.

The Resolve-class ocean-going tugs are a class of two large oceangoing tugs operated by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) for the Royal Navy. The Resolve-class tugs are designed to provide assistance to Royal Navy vessels in distress, tow surface targets for firing practices, and support other MoD tasks.

Overall, the Resolve-class tugs play a crucial role in supporting the operations of the Royal Navy and contribute to the overall effectiveness of the UK’s maritime defense capabilities.

The Caldercraft Resolve kit brings marine modeling into the 21st century. With seven sheets of CNC cut ply including paneling for the various cabins and screen printed overlays where necessary. Over 300 brass etched fittings and over 750 white metal fittings make this the most detailed Caldercraft kit to-date. Funnels and hull are molded in GRP with plating detail. All wood, dowel, rod, rigging cord and ships boats to complete the kit are provided.
