These small but rugged coastal freighters, called Clyde Puffers, were built from the 1850s through 1920 to carry freight into and around the coastal waterways of Scotland and were still in use well into the 1950's and possibly even later. The term "Puffer" comes for the distinct puffing noise produced by its steam engine. Although this ship has its roots in Scotland, it would be right at home on any dock-side scene. Our kit includes many features and accessories commonly found aboard small freighters of all nationalities.
This kit consists of many highly detailed resin castings including a super detailed one piece hull with riveted steel plate details, one piece super structure, one piece wheelhouse, mast, boom, smoke stack, ship's boat and more. A special addition to this kit is the highly detailed Vertical Cylinder Steam Winch Kit which is a show stopping kit all to itself. Our kit also contains laser cut ratlines, railings, ladders, and much much more. Lead-free Britannia metal detail parts include an anchor, ventilators, and davit. Chain, pulleys, and rigging line are also included.
Everything you need to produce this strikingly beautiful ship that will be a signature piece to your waterfront scene.
Quick Assembly! Great Results!
