Waveney class lifeboat (miniature)775 views
achillesm.jpg
ACHILLES697 viewsThis lovely little display piece is a model of a fast New York schooner, circa 1835.
Victory_starboard_bow_for_site.jpg
HMS Victory (Restoration)696 viewsThis family heirloom came to us with the fore topgallant mast and jib-boom badly shattered, plus a good deal of other rigging damage. After about a hundred hours very close work, she left our workshop looking like this. As much original material as possible was preserved and incorporated, and new material was carefully matched. It's quite hard to tell where the old ends and the new begins, which for a restoration is right and proper.
(Model by family builder, restored by John Davies)
waveney1.jpg
Waveney class lifeboat (miniature)651 viewsPerhaps not quite a true scale model, but a very apealingh miniature, which makes a pleasant bookshelf model, not too demanding of display space.
bountywreck2.jpg
Bounty (wreck... saved!)565 viewsYou'd never believe this fine model was rescued from the horrible bundle of sticks in the previous picture!
victory1.jpg
HMS Victory563 viewsNelson's famous flagship needs no introduction. With her complex hull form, three decks of gun ports, intricate rig and ornate decoration, she is one of the most complex and demanding wooden boat model projects possible.

Trent class lifeboat (miniature)549 views
shamrock1.jpg
Shamrock V (J Class)530 viewsMarking the end of one era and the beginning of a new one, "Shamrock V" was the last Americas Cup challenger built for Sir Thomas Lipton, who had tried, unsucessfully, to regain the cup, for many years. She was also the first British J class yacht.
rnlb_blue_peter_vii_miniature1.jpg
Trent class lifeboat (miniature)528 viewsNot quite as detailed as some of the larger and more detailed lifeboat models, but not nearly so expensive, either, nor is she so demanding of display space.
Complete_Deck_Detail_View.jpg
Small Colin Archer; deck detail526 viewsEven on a small display model, we try to get the detail right. It's surprising how many models show the sails hoisted and the lines coming down to a pin rail or cleat and cut off there. Imagine you're on the real boat. You go to lower a sail. You cast off the rope; the end vanishes up the mast...... that's why pin rails, as here, have the bights of the ropes coiled down and hanging from them.

punt4.jpg
Clinker Punt.518 viewsAs you can see, this one went to be the punt on a magnificent large radio-controled sailing model of a Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter. However, she is a pretty little thing in her own right, and would make a nice display piece if you like traditional dinghies. She's not too expensive, either.

Complete_Port_Bow_View.jpg
Small Colin Archer, Port Bow view.506 viewsBuilt to a tight deadline for a wedding present, she makes a pretty picture.
