Examples of models various types.

Bounty (wreck... saved!)413 viewsYou'd never believe this fine model was rescued from the horrible bundle of sticks in the previous picture!
Pond_yacht_Deck_detail_complete.jpg
Pond yacht restored deck detail497 viewsI quite deliberately did not restore her to the best finish that would have been possible. She was a competent amateur built model, so that was the standard I endeavoured to reproduce. Her owners got her back in a condition very like she would have been when she was brand new, and yes, she can be sailed again.
(Model by family builder, restored by John Davies)
enterprise3.jpg
Enterprise (J Class)272 viewsAs well as having a superb boat, Harold Vanderbilt, the owner and skipper of "Enterprise", used the best American management methods. His professional crew was well paid and well treated. The ship was run by an afterguard consisting of Vanderbilt as skipper and helmsman, an assistant helmsman, a navigator, and two specialists for the setting of the rigging and the sails. Each man had his job to do, to ensure the whole team functioned smoothly.
The selection trials to choose the defender were closely fought. "Whirlwind" proved a failure, but both "Yankee" and "Weetamoe" came close to beating "Enterprise". After the selection series, the Americas Cup contest of 1930 proved an anticlimax. "Shamrock V" never looked like winning even one race.

Schnellboot_for_site.jpg
Schnellboot.647 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
Enterprise1.jpg
Enterprise (J Class)248 views"Enterprise" was a high-tech wonder. She was built of Tobin bronze over steel frames, a very expensive form of construction, which gives great strength, light weight, and a glassy smooth bottom which is naturally antifouling.
