250′ Self Unloader for Great Lakes Freighters in N and Z

This self unloader has a 250′ boom that can be positioned. It is built for my 614′ and 735′ Great Lakes bulkers.

The elevator house occupies the two rear hatches. The boom is positionable. This all-styrene kit is easy to build. Rigging is left to the modeler, as it will depend on the positioning of the boom. It is shown on my Z scale model of the AlgoSteel, a 735′ Fitzgerald-class Laker.

Kit: USD $89.00

Built-up is only available with a built-up ship, inquire for combined price.

    • I don’t know what scale your ship is modeled in. A Z scale unloader would certainly fit; the N scale unloader might be too long. The length of the unloader is determined by the reach off the ship to the shore, as transport of the coal to the unloader is internal to the ship.
