The finest quality live steam model we have ever offered, this scratch-built 1/8 scale model is in complete working order. It is a model of the Windermere Boat built by Brockbank from her first owner, Alfred Sladen, own design.

Historically, BAT was the first ship ever steered by remote control, from the experiments of Isaac Story and Jack Kitchen.

The model comes with complete operating and care instructions in its brass-edged glass case cover on a painted wood base with handles.
