Hi Folks,

I don't know how many of you received this, but I found in the mail yesterday an offer from the Danbury Mint that may interest some of you.

The offer is for a die-cast scale model of a 1961 Nauset with a white Mercury 800 and a trailer. The picture looks great.

The mailing does not offer a web site address, but I did find two pretty bad pictures on another site:

Scroll down and you'll see it.

Just an FYI. I've never seen a Whaler model before. It's $120.00. Phone 888-854-7108

Rich here are a few links to post about this model which might be of interest. Probably are a few more since it did cause a lot of excitement --- particularly Whalenut thought it was way cool and matter of fact it is ---- Tom

Oops... I should have searched first. I'd delete this post if I could. Maybe Jim will if he likes.

Hey, this "classic" model whaler isn't right. Look at the single cable steering evident in the stern shot. I thought that boat came from the factory with a pulley-and-cable system. It would appear that those modelers didn't do their homework.

You`re right about that, and also a Mercury on the back isn`t correct, no bottom paint would be nice and there should be the Bow Rail option. Regards-Jack Graner.

I got one anyway just because it was what I grew up on as a kid. They also screwed up on the rubrail.

Steering wheel too. Defenders were not available until early 70's I believe.
