Tramp Steamer

Here's the first preview snaps off the next vessel to slip from the Sally 4th shipyard.








We're hoping to have them on pre-order by end of week, and maybe a few to pick up at Partizan on the 20th.

That's an excellent looking ship.
Could you please tell us how long it is and the width?

She's 24" long and just over 4" wide.
Fore & Aft deck's lift off for access to holds.
Roof, Bridge & Accommodation all lift off for access to engine room in hull.

I'm hoping to have her available for pre-order later today, and am planning to include some free bunk beds and lockers during the pre-order period.

OK, as there has been a lot of interest we've put her on pre-order (even before she's had a lick of paint or completed her sea trials).

Any pre-release orders will get to sets's of our bunk beds and lockers for free (to start kitting her out) and a 10% discount. Pre-orders will ship on 8th June.

What's the lower upper deck (the portion under the bridge) look like? Is that accessible as well?

The area under the deck is accessible as well, it has a door fore and aft and two openings with removable hatches for access to the companionway ladders down to the engine room.

A thing of beauty.

This reminds me to complete my own steamers. I have two huge buggers sitting on the shelf waiting to be launched..,

I've succumbed! Now I really need to build the dock terrain I've been planning for years.

Chris, is there a photograph of this on your website I can link to? I could see this gracing a few 1:55 scale model railways.

I like the look of that- I think there may be a spot for it on my next table. :D
