This is the 1/26 Scale Louise Steam Launch Wooden Boat Kit from Constructo.|
Recommended for Experienced Modelers.
The Louise is a replica of a Victorian steam launch. At that time, steam
launches on the Thames were owned only by wealthy people. Today only replicas
of these boats remain, but there are many devoted enthusiasts in Great Britain
and the U.S. who sail them on rivers and lakes purely for fun and entertainment
purposes. They recall the early years of steam propulsion, one of the most
beautiful times in naval history.
