ranger4.jpg
Ranger. (J Class)236 viewsShe was broken up in 1941. It seems a full-sized replica may be built. You can buy our lovely miniature replica for a great deal less, today.
Trafalgar_chuntering_on_surface.jpg
Trafalgar class submarine.354 viewsJust like the real boat, the model Trafalgar class is not really happy on the surface. But pump in ballast and she slips below into her true element.
(Model by John Davies)

Waveney class lifeboat (miniature)379 viewsPerhaps not quite a true scale model, but a very apealingh miniature, which makes a pleasant bookshelf model, not too demanding of display space.

HMS Cossack633 viewsWell known as the command of captain (later Admiral Sir Philip) Vian, who rescued 299 British seamen from the Altmark, and played a decisive role in the sinking of the Bismarck.
Vian did not suffer fools at all, and had absolutely no time for inefficiency. He was reputed to be intolerant, completely tactless, and an absolutely superb fighting sailor; truly one of the very great captains.

Sovereign of the Seas.203 viewsThe "Sovereign of the Seas was launched in 1637. For her day she was an astonishingly advanced vessel. She was the first three-deck hundred gun line of battle ship, setting a pattern which was to be recogniseably followed for most of the next two hundred years, until fighting sail was superceded by steam. She was a sharp departure from the galleons and their developments which had preceded her. Her rig was similarly advanced for its day. She was the first Royal Naval vessel to cross royal yards. Her decoration was more ornate than any vessel before or since, causing the Dutch, against whom she fought, to call her the "Golden Devil"
