Motor Tug 'Active' / 'Crosby'

Does anyone have any photos of the Liverpool Alexandra Towing tug 'Active'? I am restoring a radio control model of her and need a few shots of the bows and fendering in particular. I know she had some sisters including 'Crosby', so they would do as well.
Thanks

Thanks Gdynia

Emails to them have been unanswered so far, so I made up some typical fendering for the bow and stern (at least typical of that era) with black rubber tube and bought some off the peg scale tyres for the sides. Looks good. (*))
