The Caldercraft Joffre Tyne Tug was built in 1916 by the Androssan Dry Dock & Shipping Co. She was owned throughout her career by Lawson-Batey Tugs Ltd. of Newcastle on Tyne. Specifically built for the coastal towing business her gross tonnage was 260, with an engine power of 1,140 i.h.p. this was quite a high power for ships of her day. Fitted with two sets of towing hooks, an unusual feature for tugs of her size, the after one was used for towing lighters on the river Tyne.

Model has a plain GRP hull with CNC cut superstructure and deck, screen printed overlays and over 300 cast white metal fittings, including the ships crew and the ships dog. To complete the kit, all the necessary timber, cordage and vacuum formed lifeboats are supplied. As the Joffre saw service through two world wars it gives scope for additional detailing and a wartime paint scheme.
