Ebay - What is this thing ?
« on: August 02, 2019, 06:46:59 pm »

I reckon this is a designer's showroom presentation thing.

6 photographs from 3 years ago by the looks of it. Could be a bag of bits now! LoL, otherwise I thought of something akin many years ago from dateline, but with specs back on looks a bit like a builders model to me also? Another "gem" of an eBay ad though!

It is a model of a Sealine F45, F42 or F48 It is such a crude model I am finding it hard to tell which it should be. They were a British brand who were legends in the marine industry and then unfortunately starting turning out these 'futuristic' boats and went bust. The company was eventually bought out by a German company called Haines I think. When they went under a lot of odd stuff was sold, obviously including this which would have been used for displays. One that springs to mind was a bare shell of their SC35 was sold that had no structural supports in it - as it was only used for display on the roundabout outside their HQ. Unsurprisingly this appears on Ebay every few years as is essentially useless!

Seeing as the first picture is obscured, I would want to see another picture of the starboard side, to make sure it is not damaged. This picture is taken next to the house front door where it is obscured by trees, the others are not.

Thankyou for the Identification me3.I imagine it would a great deal of work to turn it into a working model.

Still listed today with 3 year old pics, yours a snip for 170, or 16 for 12 months payment apparently, really: why even offer it on credit, would anyone even contamplate it?
