  • M839: Customs Shed.
  • M840: Warehouse.
  • M841: Ocean Terminal Building (x2).
  • M843: Ocean Terminal Extension.

'The Complete Pier' comprising of:

  • M847: Centre section (x2) We also have an additional 2 of this piece.
  • M848: Entrance section (x1) We have an additional 1 of these.
  • M849: Pier Head
  • M850: Pier Shelter (x2) we have an additional 1 of these.
  • M851: Entrance Archway (x1) we have an additional 1 of these.
  • M852: Pier Head Building.

The 'Complete Pier' models are fairly uncommon compared to most of the other harbour models produced.

  • M878: Lighthouse.
  • M882: Beacon.
  • M884: Statue of Liberty. This model is also fairly uncommon and was also found in the SS United States box set.
  • M885: Floating Dry Dock.
  • M880: Whale. The whale is quite a rare model and came in either blue or grey of which we have the grey version. The Whale model also served another purpose in that when a Helicopter model was needed for the HMS Albion Commando Ship model the whale was used with a propeller from M783: HMS Hampshire nailed to it's head!

When is a whale not a whale? When it's a helicopter.
