just seen this on Ebay and having had the pleasure of having this on the gwynedd Model Boat group stand at Blackpool I can safely say it is well worth the money

Some other pretty interesting stuff there as well - more suitable for the UK gang due to shipping costs.

Mike,

I agree it is interesting, but not scratch built as claimed....I recognise many of the old Caldercrafts fittings, including the figure of the little boy..

It is, I've just finished rebuilding my 20 year old one and I'd swear it's the same model (except mines much better of course  :-[)

Jotika bought the old Caldercraft Company from the late Frank Hinchliffe during the early 90's, but obviously kept the trade name.
