This waterline kit of a charming, gas powered vessel is supplied with a solid resin hull & attached bulwarks. Kit includes fine quality resin and pewter castings. We use the finest molds & artist’s resins.
This kit is designed to give the modeler the best advantage in building and finishing a terrific model. All the original patterns were made in our shop with reference to the details of several prototypes and much research in books, and photographs. Our Craftsman kits are freelance designs that incorporate from some prototype vessels. Our inspiration to craft this model was our various sightings of the Laura B out of Port Clyde Maine. Similar vessels can be found on any body of water that has islands that need to be serviced - approx. 1950.
The vessels primary function is to transport people and life supporting items from mainland to island and back. Items transported would be everything from fuel, food, clothing, etc, to automobiles & tractors.
