Examples of models various types.
britannia1.jpg
HMY Britannia732 viewsThis model of the Royal Yacht "Britannia" faithfully captures her lovely lines. A true scale model, she has an excellent performance on the water. Radio control equipment gives control of the rudder, independent control of the twin screws, and switches on a small tape player loaded with a compilation of music from the band of the Royal Marines. At just over four feet long, she is big enough to have a wonderfully convincing presence on the water. She was featured in "Marine Modelling" magazine.

Clinker Punt.440 viewsBuilt all in wood, she is a fascinating miniature.

Eye of the Wind359 viewsThe lovely little sail training ship "Eye of the Wind" is one of Frank Hasted's favorite ships. He has had many happy times afloat on her. This model was made for his beloved Lesley, to commemorate her introduction to offshore sailing, steering the ship on her eightieth birthday in a full gale.
If there is a ship which holds particularly happy memories for you, we will be happy to build a high quality miniature replica for you, too. One day, if the demands of the business ever give us enough time, I may ask Frank to build "Hoshi" for me; but that's another story!

Narrowboat_signwritten_for_site.jpg
Blue narrowboat765 viewsWe built two narrowboats, for a gentleman whose garden is given over to a large and splendid live-steam narrow-gauge system.
Visitors on open days say they make a marvellous sight, gliding silently along the cut, while the little trains chuff along the quays, and passing the two without mishap is as interesting as in a real canal.

dogboat.jpg
Fairmile D966 viewsFerocious looking dogboat, based on a commercially available hull and fittings. Today kits are available. We would be happy to replicate her. She makes an interesting exercise in high-powered scale power plants, and on the water she doesn't half go!
Agnes_bow_detail_for_site.jpg
Agnes (detail)1107 viewsAbsolutely wonderful scale (1/12th) sailing model of a modern Bristol Channel Pilot cutter, built using traditional materials and the original plans. SOLD
Gunter_Sloop.jpg
Gunter Sloop731 viewsThis one is going to be a really sweet little gunter-rigged sloop; a model of the sort of small cruising yacht, just a step up from a dayboat, that was around when I was a young man. With a bit of ingenuity, I should be able to get main, jib and lifting centreplate all to work off simple two-channel radio gear. Working this out is why I am building her. She will offer a really nice entry into scale sailing; light, small, easy to carry, but with a good performance on the water. She will be ready in 2008, tested, reliable, fully refurbished, complete with transmitter, just add water and go. If you wish to reserve her, get in touch now.

Peggy (detail)809 viewsA professional commission for a model of this nature is usually a once-in-a-lifetime purchase. I have had some extremely satisfied clients for models of this size. It will bring you the most enormous pleasure, and it will continue to do so for many years.
Eagle-eyed readers may recognise one of the photos from "Model Boats" magazine, in which it has featured.
