Taurus by Model Expo HO Scale Solid Hull Kit

by Model Expo HO Scale Solid Hull Kit

Steam Towboats like the Taurus were a familiar sight in every American harbor and navigable tidal flat at the turn of the century. During the 1930's steam engines lost ground to Diesel propulsion, and by the 1960's the steam units were all but gone. No longer used, a few steam tugs survive today as museum relics.

Model Expo Taurus, an authentic turn-of-the-century wooden towboat is fun and easy to build. Kit includes a machine carved solid wood waterline hull, laser cut cabin, and pilot house with plank-scored siding. It comes complete with doors, windows, lanterns, steam pipe and whistle... all in lead-free Britannia metal. Railing and stack guys are brass. (Wooden display base is not included.)

Scaled at 1/8" to the foot, Model Expo' Taurus is a beautiful model, and a perfect complement to any HO scale railroad layout!

I bought my Taurus more than 20 years ago. I realized it was quite daunting, and after my first few evenings, working on it, I put it back in the box and it stayed there for 20 years. Now, I'm much older, and a little more patient. I recently finished it (after 20 years ).
