Last year or earlier I was very taken by the MidWest Maine Boothbay Lobster boat in 1:12 scale. My search for months only came across the smaller version which to me was most undesirable despite that I bought one and no doubt I'll never build it.
Moving on I did find a shop in London online that had stock and bought one snappy. 
This model was conceived in the mid 1980's and indeed my club mate Stan has the model he built 30 yrs ago and is highly regarded for his weathering and added details.
I decided to build mine as a 2019 version with modifications to prop tube, superstructure and electrics. A brushless version that will run for hours on a pair of 7.2 NiMh

Thank you Cool
I just built the accompanying row boat too of same era. Lucky to find this about £20 recently on eBay.
For ages 14+ but I found it not to be underestimated and very easy to make a crock of.

Great pair of boats, really like the rower, one day I’ll make a decent replica of one and make it work, improve on my little 24th scale hash together version.

On a side note I usually class “vintage boats” as anything pre 1980’s or modern boats that keep that vintage style, You can usually tell by the window shapes and cabin/wheelhouse shape style, modern boats after the 80’s tend to start becoming more styled in modern shapes much like a sports car.

Usually that’s all I build anyway besides the odd tug boat or obscure challenge. I’ve yet to get old enough to be one hermit and his war ship... although that’s coming at some point Very Happy
