Thanks Chuck, im aware of that ready built one however its beyond both my wallet and my principles. Its a full or part kit or etch kit or 3d prints kit im looking for.
Surely somebody must have made one?
Thanks and regards

there are no 3D kits available apart from the Osborne model which was meant to be a kit but released as an RTR.  There are some American types on Shapeways.

I very much doubt that Ray will have one left ,but there is so many boxes in his shed that you never know ,I will be seeing him at Fawley on Saturday so will ask him then ,he says he is gradually going through everything but itís taking a long time , and he needs more room to spread everything out .

Morning Gentlemen, please can I raise this one again. Does anybody know of a stockist of old Fleetline kits? I still want to build a 75 ton Cowans Sheldon crane or the Ransomes Rapier.
Ive extensive searched the internet, I cant find any sources.
StephenB doesnt have his any longer, ive checked the website of xxxxx and finding nothing have emailed but no reply, ditto ive emailed Lytchett Manor but no reply.
Theres bound to be a kit of the recovery crane lurking somewhere...
Suggestions welcome. Regards to all

B H E havnt got one but Ray might be able to get one but I think you will find that the mould was so old that itís  knackered to put it mildly .
So keep looking on Ebay or at shows on the second hand stalls as you might be lucky..
