We have put the finishing touches on a brand new 1/24th scale model of Coastal Waterways Shrimp boat appropriately named Rusty. Rusty the Shrimp Boat is a stereotypical Coastal Shrimper. Equipped with outriggers, trawl boards, nets, cleaning benches and coolers, good old Rusty has everything you need for a successful day’s catch.
This 36″ model features balsa planking over laser cut poplar plywood frames. The cabin and pilot house are constructed from die-cut expanded pvc with laser cut plywood frames. The kit includes all of the material for the scaffolding, nets, outriggers and so much more, A massive instruction booklet and corresponding figure set walks you step-by-step through construction. And for an added bonus this is one of the best running boats in the line. If you have been looking for something out of the ordinary look no further than Rusty the Shrimp Boat.
