Caldercraft Imara (single/double screw) Model Boat Kit
Model Number: 7012
The Caldercraft Imara is typical of many of the period and was a twin screw harbour tug, built to a Crown Colonies contract for delivery to Dares-Salaam. Thereafter she had a colourful history, ultimately entering Royal Naval service where she was renamed 'Perseverance'.
Although impossible to describe in detail the features of a model with over 1,400 parts the the following are the most outstanding. Hull, main and rear deckhouse and funnel are moulded in GRP with all rivet and plating detail faithfully reproduced. All decks, wheelhouse etc. are CNC cut from high quality Birch ply.
Deck overlays are pre-printed with planking detail. Almost 800 fittings manufactured in high grade alloy of superb quality, with many unique features too numerous to list. It even includes the pantry, sink, jugs, cups, saucers, plates, tables and chairs for the saloon. Lifeboats are moulded in styrene with separate interior mouldings and all furniture included. Propellers not included.
A comprehensive instruction book including a detailed history of the full sized vessel and two highly detailed construction drawings. Single and twin screw versions of the hull are available.
The twin twin screw version is true to scale, and the single screw version allows for easy installation of a steam plant.
Please advise if you wish the single or twin screw version when ordering.
