Hi,  You could always try Mountfleet models as they have just released the Model Slipway coaster kit called Casper.

Thankyou  :-))


So are these Mountfleet models the Model Slipway kits?
I can see the images are the same but are the actual kits the same?

They should be as Mountfleet bought the moulds and everything else, including equipment lock, stock and barrel.

Lawrie was always very meticulous with his quality control and hopefully Mountfleet will carry on with that. I visited them in 2009 to do a report for Model Boats magazine which you can read here:
