Other Completed Models

HMS Mars

In 2005/07, David built a 1/64 scale model of the 18th century naval brig HMS “Mars”.
Built from a kit, this proved to be something of a challenge to his modelling skills.

HMS "Victory" Launch

In 2016, construction was resumed on a model of HMS “Victory”’s launch. This project was started about 15 years ago but put aside for various reasons. An open boat with lots of internal detail,this craft was a joy to construct and was completed in May 2016.

David made his first foray into radio-control in building a 1/48 scale model of a salvage tug, World War 2 vintage. This was built from a kit.

Since it was blowing a full storm force 10 on the day the kit was acquired, the finished vessel is called “Storm”. Propelled by electric motor, “Storm” has run sea-trials in next-door’s goldfish pond.

Completed in 2005, "Storm" is a radio-controlled model of an ocean-going salvage tug
