Pulp Era Canal Boats
« on: March 28, 2018, 07:39:23 PM »
Inspired by the soon to be released Canal Folk from Sloppy Jalopy, I've been busy designing some where for them to live. In fact the boss gave me permission to design a canal boat and I got a bit carried away and designed three!

The recreational narrow boat




The working narrow boat





The armed & armored narrow boat

Very nice. I've put up a link to these on a model railway forum I'm part of as a few of us use 1:55 scale which would fit these.

Not sure if the armoured version will find much use on any model railways but you never know...

Excellent canal boats. Sir Topham Hatt used to spend some holidays with his grandchildren on a recreational one if I remember correctly.  ;)

I've put up a link to these on a model railway forum I'm part of as a few of us use 1:55 scale which would fit these.

Could you post a link to that forum, please? Ive not found anything in 1/55th scale concerning model railroads.

It's hidden away under the "Specific Scales" section of the NGRM Online forum:

But you can also search the "1:55 scale tag.

They'd certainly work for AVBCW.  :)
