Examples of models various types.
trawler1.jpg
Trawler (miniature)685 viewsWe built this pretty little display model of a deepwater trawler from scratch, for a member of the family which had owned her. She was sent to Hawaii as a present for a relative.
The client had to set a tight limit on budget, so we weren't able to go to town on the detail as we might have liked to. She is a pleasant little model, and if nothing else, she illustrates the variety of commissions which we are willing and able to undertake.

Small Colin Archer, Port Bow view.708 viewsBuilt to a tight deadline for a wedding present, she makes a pretty picture.

Agnes_on_Port_tack_for_gallery_3.jpg
Agnes1092 viewsThis is the same wonderful model of a pilot cutter that is featured in the "Pre-Owned" section. Sometimes a model comes back. The gentleman I sold her to said she was quite splendid, but not the right model for him. So I bought her back in. This time, she is staying. She is a beautiful boat, and I am having so much fun sailing her. But I could build one like her for you.

"Robert Hastie"521 viewsDesigned by Camarc, a world specialist in this type of vessel (they have also designed boats for the New York pilot service), the "Robert Hastie" is a fine vessel of the most modern type. The model captures her powerful lines and distinctive appearance in every detail.

Solebay1.jpg
HMS Solebay 1810 viewsThese are perhaps not the best of photographs, but they're well worth including, because it's such a fine, impressive, highly detailed model. The Battle Class destroyers were very handsome ships.

Marie Felling.887 viewsNow the fun started. Like “Imara”, the “Marie Felling” is produced in two versions; twin-screw, which is authentic, and single-screw, which is not. This one, like most of the “Marie Fellings” I’ve seen, was single screw. So I filled in the propellor aperture in the deadwood, added plating and rivet detail to match the GRP moulding, and fitted two shafts with A frames and big brass props. You’d have to look very closely to see that was not as originally moulded. Two powerful motors and a sophisticated control system completed the package, she ran a successful trial voyage, and she went off to her delighted new owner who will now have many happy months spare-time work fitting her out.
