Examples of models – various types.
Ranger. (J Class)273 viewsSopwith's challenge of 1934 had frightened the Americans. When he issued a fresh challenge for 1937, with a new J boat, "Endeavour II", they decided to build a boat nothing could beat. Advances in the science of tank testing made it more feasible to try many different sets of lines.
Small Colin Archer; Port Quarter view.288 viewsBuilt to a tight deadline for a wedding present, she makes a pretty picture.
(Model by John Davies)
Euterpe236 viewsThe Clipper ship "Euterpe" was built on the Isle of Man for the Australian trade. She was one of the first iron ships. After an eventful life, she is now preserved as the "Star of India" at San Diego, California. We built this lovely glass-case replica for a gentleman whose grandfather had been the ship's sailmaker, in the days when she ran her easting down, around the howling Horn.

Arun 52-23 half model.312 viewsWe created this half model for one of her coxswains, on his retirement.
HMS Hurworth 5191 viewsI finally got some good on-the-water pictures of "Hurworth". A small fast-moving model can be remarkably hard to photograph well. But she does certainly look the part.

Shamrock V (J Class)275 viewsDesigned by Charles Nicholson, she was planked in mahogany over galvanised steel frames. This was an unusual form of construction for a J. Apart from the American "Whirlwind", all had metal hulls. Her lines are very graceful. She is noticeably narrower than most J boats, a feature which our model faithfully reproduces. This makes her a little tender in strong winds, but very slippery indeed in light airs. On one occasion, she won a race by shooting straight for the line over a distance of three miles, her skipper relying on her ability to carry her way through the light fluky breeze and patches of calm.
Clan Ross Cargo Liner (detail)407 views(Model by John Davies)
HMS Victory294 viewsThe result is a quite stunning replica, which will grace your home, and is very likely to appreciate in value as the years go by.
