VICTORIAN STEAM LAUNCH
At the end of the 19th century, pretty little steamboats like the Louise were a common sight on the River Thames. Usually between 20 to 40 feet in length, powered by a simple but efficient boiler system and cooled by water from the river itself. Many of them, after 100 years of service are still in operation today.
You'll use traditional plank-on-bulkhead construction to build your model. Most wooden parts are pre-cut, fittings are cast in white metal and brass, and all parts for the steam engine and boiler are supplied.
The paint sets for these kits are historically accurate colors that have been specially formulated for model ships. They are high quality acrylic based paints that can be thinned with water, thinner or alcohol. They clean up easily with water, making them ideal for airbrush use. Brushed or sprayed, paints dry flat with good grain structure and a smooth finish. The colors contained in each paint set are based on the colors shown in the picture of the model. 1 oz. bottles
these are high quality ship model kits, they may not be suitable for
some one not familiar with building foreign model ship kits.
