Examples of models various types.
Complete_Port_Quarter_View.jpg
Small Colin Archer; Port Quarter view.245 viewsBuilt to a tight deadline for a wedding present, she makes a pretty picture.
(Model by John Davies)
Trafalgar_Bow.jpg
Trafalgar class submarine.411 viewsThis big black beast is a Sheerline Models Trafalgar class submarine. The Trafalgar class boats are the Royal Navy's current class of nuclear hunter-killer boats. They are among the most sophisticated, quietest, most effective boats in the world. The model is quite an intricate little machine. Just like the real thing, both rudders and planes work, and an onboard tank will either flood with ballast or blow it out.

Schnellboot_for_site.jpg
Schnellboot.572 views1/24th scale, a big, impressive, model, with an excellent performance. Not quite to our usual standard, but then the price was good and cheap too! SOLD
bountywreck1.jpg
Bounty (wreck)298 viewsFrank Hasted admits it took all his skill to rescue this very rough "Bounty" hull which a client brought to him, but our before-and-after pictures show that even the worst part-built project can be brought to a successful conclusion.
(Original butchery by unknown builder, model rescued by Frank Hasted)
Endeavour3.jpg
Endeavour (J Class)184 viewsIt also seems that Sopwith's afterguard were not as well organised as Vanderbilt's team. "Endeavour"s navigator had a background largely confined to big ships. He was very competent within his limitations, but, understandably, was out of his depth in the specialised conditions of a match race.
Finally, Vanderbilt's tactician, the wily Sherman Hoyt, twice succeeded in luring Sopwith into a covering duel, when "Endeavour" had a commanding lead and a clear run to the finishing line. He did this in the third race, and again in the vital sixth race, on which the outcome of the series hinged. As they say in my home country, "If they has you once, shame on them. If they has you twice, shame on you".

Peggy545 viewsThis fine model of a North Sea Herring Drifter represents a vanished era. They were built in their thousands, but now only one remains in preservation. They evoke not only a vanished industry, but a major change in our attitudes to the natural world.
enterprise4.jpg
Enterprise (J Class)185 viewsLike all American J boats, "Enterprise" had a short life. She was made obsolete by changes in the J class rule in 1932, which made her stripped-out interior illegal. She could not carry the interior fittings required without badly compromising her performance. She spent most of her last years laid up, and was dismantled in 1935.
Yet she is of immense historic importance. Many of the innovations she pioneered are commonplace on today's racing yachts. Not the best-known of the J boats, she is still one of the most interesting. Our model is a fitting reminder of this fascinating yacht. We would be honoured to create one for you.

Clinker Punt.246 viewsBuilt all in wood, she is a fascinating miniature.
