These rugged steam launches were seen almost anywhere there was water from the late 1800's through the 1930's with many still in service as special excursion boats or in museums or private collections today. This boat works great ferrying supplies or passengers across your harbor or up river to your logging camp.

A bit about Frenchman River Model Works
We are a mom and pop manufacturer that has produced quality kits and detail parts primarily for the model railroad industry for over 20 years.
We hand make the original parts for our kits usually by looking at blueprints and photos of the original object and then making silicone rubber molds for each resin part and vulcanized rubber molds for the lead-free Brittannia metal parts. From that point, the resin and the metal are hand poured into the respective molds. Each part is carefully packaged complete with instructions for easy assembly. Our kits and parts are:
-true to scale -handmade -mostly free of parting lines and “flash” -come with detailed instructions
Quick Assembly. Great Results!
*our kits are not to be considered as toys. While easy for even children to assemble, they are not intended for children under 14 years of age.
