This waterline kit of a charming, steam powered vessel is supplied with a solid resin hull with detached bulwarks. Kit includes brass ladders & rails, detailed photo etched brass pilot & deck house walls & resin roofs, plus quality pewter castings. We use the finest molds & artist’s resins.
The buoy tender is a vessel that just tended offshore buoys, carried passengers & freight from the mainland to distant islands or worked a hard day and night around a harbor with a crew who might not be concerned about just how pristine their vessel looks. The modeler has a great chance to weather and configure the vessel as having done some serious work or in pristine condition just after being launched. Our Work Boat has worked hard since approx. 1930 to present. 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.
