Die Cast Model of Miss Thriftway

I have a die cast, highly detail model of the Miss Thriftway (approximately 6" long) that I think I bought in the 1990's from the Hydropane & Raceboat Museum.  It seems to me that several other hydros were offered at the same time.  I have never seen any of them offered again.  Does anyone have one of these excellent models or know what happened to them? See More
