I remember, Phil Thomas (RIP), a good friend in Glasgow built a model of one of this class some years ago.

He utilised the basic Kingston Moulding's "E" garth type hull and undertook surgery to lengthen etc to suit his needs.

A good looking model in the end. I think he called it CAMPAIGNER as all three of the class went to the Clyde fleet and got local names, but that was before this funnel colour was introduced in 1985.

A nit-pick only but this funnel should have the R for Rea instead of Cory in the diamond for the era in those colours.

you are right about the funnel.the pump is from a car windscreen washer and is used in short bursts to save overheating but does the job for the photos.
