Now here is a real beauty and beautifully made too. A blast from the past and I remember the local model shop having one in the window for a long while in the late 1980's?

if it remains that price it's a steal.

I have just been talking with the owner of this boat.......and he picked up the hull only at a show, and scratch built the rest, so is not a Marvon models kit. very very impressive and very nice indeed..

Model slipway


Trent Lifeboat on eBay
http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Model-Slipway-Trent-Lifeboat-Part-Built-Many-Extras-Please-look-/232229896674?hash=item3611fb01e2%3Ag%3AUPgAAOSw5cNYlwz2&_trkparms=pageci%253A18d9925d-ef21-11e6-9b03-74dbd180f297%257Cparentrq%253A253f9fdb15a0a6a8d0d4722dfffccfda%257Ciid%253A11


Looks quite Good
I emailed the seller and asked how much he wanted
Over 240
I called Jackie at MS and was informed that the Trent is no longer being produced as a semi Kit
As they where not selling enough.
Not a bad price then that the guys asking.

You could always leave her in the box and sell off in the future??
Buy a Tamar and build that or Go for Models by Design Shannon

Just what this country needs for her new defence system once article 50 has been implemented.

It needs a repaint and a couple of minor cracks repairing, but these are not urgent issues.

Not the words you need to see about a submarine.

GRAUPNER PEGASUS -  the only kit I was unable to finish due to, in my opinion, the poor quality of of an expensive kit, plans errors,  construction method ..... and the designers insidious attitude to the end builder!

I built this actual model to this stage and gave up the will to live!
 The owner has also obviously given up on it too!
