Caldercraft SS Talacre Model Boat Kit
Model Number: 7005
The Caldercraft SS Talacre model boat kit is a typical single hatch coaster used in the coal trade of a type that was found by the hundreds around the coast of the U.K. in the golden era of steam. Designed for Point of Ayr Collieries by Crichton Thompson & Co Ltd. of London she was built by Crabtree &Co. of Great Yarmouth in 1917. Talacre was named after a small village near the colliery. Talacre was finally scraped in 1959 by the Hammond Lane Foundry in Dublin. Realism leaps out of the completed model as if a turn of a valve will start the anchor windlass or the cargo winch clattering away and the lagged steam pipes to begin steaming and drying out.
The hull is of GRP fully detailed on the exterior with plating double riveting and strakes. The whole package is complete with CNC cut plywood printed overlays funnel material hatch cover moulded ships boats mast and boom material cargo material rigging cord transfers detailed drawings and instruction book crew members and all cast white metal fittings to complete.
