This scale model of a waterline Clyde Puffer, set at 1:76, captures the essence of these hardy vessels that navigated the rivers and coastal waters. Care has gone into reproducing the dimensions and features based on the original 1904 ships, with consideration for both railway enthusiasts and wargamers looking for period-accurate pieces. The model includes finer details such as tiller steering, removable hatch covers, and a wheelhouse that can be placed as desired. Wire handrails and a robust mast and boom contribute to the model's character. It comes with 28 pieces, promising a straightforward assembly experience for a rewarding addition to any harbour scene. The waterline model measures 270mm long and 75mm wide at the hull, reaching 62mm to the top of the wheelhouse and 138mm to the mast's peak. This kit is supplied unpainted, allowing for customisation to one's own taste. The wheelhouse can be fitted forward or aft of the funnel. 

4mm/1:76 scale for OO railways or 20mm wargames figures. Waterline model of a Clyde puffer. Based on drawings of the 66’6” long Garmoyle 100grt ship.

The ‘IN ACTION’ images of this model are included here in order to give you some ideas for setting the scene on your own model railway or wargaming table. Many of the other items in the photographs are also produced by me and are available here from this site. The majority of the painting and detailing work was done using mainly acrylic paints due to their fast drying time. The process is to wash the resin model in warm soapy water to remove any traces of the silicone mould release agent. This will aid good paint adhesion. Next I recommend a primer, but I don’t bother unless the model will be subject to a lot of handling. After applying the main colours I then use a dark wash to increase the contrast and once dry a quick ‘dry brush’ with a lighter shade to pick up the raised details. Finally a spray or brush matt varnish for protection."- Stuart
