Description

Caldercraft Cumbrae

The Cumbrae is a Scottish motor puffer built in 1943 by Hay, MacKenzie & Co. Ltd. of Kilmarnock. Puffers were small cargo ships used to transport goods and supplies around the coast of Scotland and the Western Isles.

The Cumbrae is a well-known and much-loved vessel in Scotland. It is one of the last remaining Clyde puffers still in operation today. The vessel has been lovingly restored and is used for leisure cruises, educational trips, and special events along the Scottish coast.

The Cumbrae is a symbol of Scotland’s maritime heritage and industrial history. It offers a unique and nostalgic experience for visitors to learn about the traditional working life of puffer boats in Scotland. More information about the Cumbrae can be found through maritime museums, heritage organizations, or by visiting the vessel in person at its home port.

The Caldercraft Cumbrae kit features a hull made from GRP with full plating and rivet detail on the exterior. The ship’s boat and funnel are styrene moldings and the remainder of the model consists of die-cut plywood parts, printed deck and wheelhouse overlays and all associated materials that are needed: Instruction booklet and drawings, dowel, wire, rod, chain, rigging line, decals, prop and prop shaft make up Caldercrafts usual kit package topped off with a comprehensive set of white metal fittings. Drop the side gratings and watch your pilot grab the hand rails and step back aboard. While this kit is intended t be put in the water it also makes for a unique display onn your shelf.
