Here I have a wooden launch made by the Hobbies company in Norfolk England in the 1920s. The Hobbies company later became hobbies bowman in the 1930s and produced a highly collectable range of model steam boats. This design was from the very early years of the company when they had a couple of teams vessels and 2 clockwork launches of which this is one. They clockwork boats by Hobbies were in production for just 2-3 years before the company concentrated on developing its range of steam boats.This one is just under 60 cm long (24 inches) and fits into its original box that is battered and has some damage to the lid. The boat has a small amount to damage to the deck on the edge at one side near the nose. The clockwork mechanism needs attention as its not winding up at present.It would therefore make a good restoration project and if completed a very nice example of an early Hobbies Bowman boat.
