The City of Buffalo is a beautiful example of the steamboats that flourished on the resort lakes of the northeastern United States in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Designed by Capt. J.W. Pierce, she was built in Jamestown New York, and launched in 1890 on Chautauqua Lake in New York. One of 13 large (125') steamboats built entirely of wood and sheathed in steel, she served the region from 1809 to 1929. Unfortunately, like so many of her sisters, she was destroyed by fire in 1929.

This beautifully detailed 1/48th scale model (compatible with O scale) features plank-on-frame construction and includes balsa, poplar plywood, and expanded PVC. Also included are cast metal pieces, laser cut components, flags, decals and much more. The construction documentation includes full-size plans, a 57 page instruction booklet and a 30 page figure packet with 70 individual figure drawings.

Length: 33 inches, Beam: 8 inches, Scale: 1/48.

Dumas kit no. 1270.

Note: Use Running Hardware Kit #2377 (our item #86329, sold separately) for the drive line System. Please note some of the running hardware parts are called for early in the construction of the model.
