This is a Graupner kit produced many years ago but it was withdrawn by them shortly after its launch due to the negative publicity since it is a model of whaling vessel. Because of this, it is very rare model.

It was built to a very high standard by a Mr John Trethowan when the kit was first produced. John passed away a while ago, his son Hugh kept it stored for many years but has decided to donate it to our club. He hopes someone will enjoy sailing her once again but maybe not hunting for any whales – though the fish in Apex are about the right scale!

All proceeds from its sale are being donated to Guide Dogs for the Blind.
