The strange H.S. badged boat has now arrived in my collection. Still don't know the origin of this maker but may have something to do with Ernst Plank (perhaps Hans Schiller?)

Together with this I also got this little Hess gunboat, operated by a friction wheel.

They are both very nice looking models and I like the wave action of the gunboat. Thanks for sharing.

Cheers,
Eriks

These are both very nice. 

I also like the motion simulating the gunboat rolling over some waves. 

Thank you for sharing.
