Coastlines CL-B02b Thames stem head barge under sail 1/1250
A 1/1250 scale model of a Thames stem head barge under sail by Coastlines Models CL-B02b.
Although capable of coastal voyages, these barges could also be found on the Upper Thames and the Thames and Severn Canal. This resin model is under 25mm in length.
The larger staysail barges with their bowsprits and greater sail area were preferred for the longer coastal voyages but the stem head "River Barges" could be found from Lowestoft to Portsmouth and inland via the Thames & Severn Canal as far west as Brimscombe Port, 3 miles from Antics Stroud shop. The model is some 20mm long and under full sail.
