Part finished Smit Rotterdam. Any offer considered.

I have a part-built Smit Rotterdam by Billing Boats and I need to admit that I will never finish it. It has the detailing still to do and includes the accessories kit. The project has been ongoing since I was a boy, so the boat is circa 40 years old.
As far as I can tell everything is complete and I was careful to store the fittings kit in storage boxes. Unfortunately I don’t have the original box. A worthwhile project for completion. I am open to offers on this part-built kit.

Caldercraft Imara – twin screw project

I bought this as a project, one too many for me to complete, plus I already have three of these tugs! So, I am offering it for sale to someone with the time and skill to bring it to life. It has been built to a reasonable standard but needs a lot of re-work especially on the deck.
You can see that whoever built it was not thinking about access to the electrics, or steam plant. There are also a lot of loose parts, and other items that need repair, but not beyond the abilities of most experienced modellers.
She is well on the way to being completed, so can be on the water by summer. When finished she will make a lovely tug for someone to enjoy.

Price £320.00
