Mount Fleet Pilot Boat Britannia This model is based mainly on old photographs of a Tyne Pilot Boat. So far as is known the colours are correct and she features a large anchor windlass on the fore deck. One thing that is certain is she was built onto the already proven 86' Steel Drifter Hull so fits readily into our range and builds into a clean uncluttered model which is ideal for steam or electric power. With the large saloon entry house good access is assured, and that, along with her funnel position makes her ideal for steam installation and the opening doors etc ensure a plentiful air supply to burners. Photographs show a builders type ladder lashed to the forward boom and we have faithfully portrayed that on the model. Little is know about the prototype apart from the photos we based the model on, but she is a typical Tyne Pilot Boat from the turn of the century. She was launched in 1907 and spent her service life on the River Tyne in the North East of England. Scale: 1:24 Length: 43 inches (1092 mm) Beam: 9.25 inches (235 mm) Displacement: 18lbs (87.5 kg) Suitable for static display, free running or 2 plus function radio control Kit contains: • GRP Moulded hull, superstructure and ships boats complete with superb surface detail • Printed wood for Decks, Saloon & Skylight • Nearly 700 white metal fittings • All necessary wood, cordage, wire etc • Full size drawing & instruction book • Propshaft & propeller
