Hello Rick, a friend of mind who has just past-away & the Ben Rosie model was among the rest of the model if I said 20-25 all unfinished, of them I wouldn't be Wong, & if you notes that it has a Yellow with tip Black stack not Ben Line funnel, I spent all w-end looking 4 it, I was going 2 buy it from his wife until I did some research on it, you see the card in the post as well, it fell out when we where looking @ it, it reads, My first view of this that it was a ben line steamer low & behold it is, (Haha) this is a family shipping company who are based on the east coast of Scotland, The value to be 300-500 if auction @ Aberdeen you could hit the jackpot, My friend went to London to buy it just before he past away. I saw it for the first time lust week, & his wife told me he paid 200 for it, if it was a Ben boat I would pay that for it?? poor guy got rip-off, still it's a nice model..

Hi JJ,Point taken,but I did say 'modelled on a BEN Line ship'-in fact the third photo along is showing the houseflag of the company - a single black anchor on a white background with a red border !!


Cheers,Rick.
