If you are fascinated by British history then there is no better collection than Caldercraft’s beautiful selection of model kits, all of which are replicas of famous ships in British history. The ‘Nelson’s Navy’ collection by Caldercraft is one of the most popular amongst model makers. It contains various ships from the famous Lord Nelson and his navy that defeated the French across several wars and decades.
Caldercraft have branched out in to creating replicas of different types of vessels for you to recreate at home, such as this one of the Marie Felling harbour tugboat. She was originally commissioned by a Crown Colonies contract for service in the Tanzania town of Dares-Salaam. Built by Earls of Hall and launched in 1928, she was designed for many different types of harbour work and intended to help British colonies and support the growing trade network across the empire.
