From a pure collector perspective it naturally is interesting, being their only complete launch offered, which also often is reflected in the pricetags.
Personally i find it too simple with itīs D3 boiler/D15 engine, and from a launch perspective on par with a well built Midwest Heritage kit.
I much agree Jan , the D3 boiler with its minuscule capacity & its impossible to view  water level sight glass bubbles.
I do fancy making an "African Queen " type steam vessel though.
