  4. HMS Swan (1775) Updated

    These photos show my first attempt at a diorama and I featured a highly-modified HMS Pegasus kit (Amati/Victory Models) for the subject: the first ship of the Swan Class, appropriately, HMS Swan! After completion, I had fun staging and taking the photos. The final display is large (40" X 20" X 3")  as I had to show a reasonable amount of water around the 1/64- scale ship.

  15. Mephisto (aka Le Camaret) by Probablynot Updated

    Lobster fishing boat.  The model's based on boats that sailed from Le Camaret early in the 20th century.  But I've renamed mine "Mephisto", after a boat that was based in St Gilles/Croix de Vie, Vendée, about a hundred miles SE along the French coast.

  17. HMS Victory by Mark Wickham Updated

    Built initially from the Billings Boats model which I used as the basis for my model. I say as the basis for it, as the more I started building Victory the more I wanted to add detail, such as the gun crews, which I know had many more sailors working the real gun decks, but I've kept things a little bit more minimalistic, I've also made internal cabins etc., and added lights throughout which unfortunately you can't see in these photographs. The whole build took me four years, which is something I've never focused on for that long before.

  20. FV Roc Amadour Updated

    The stern trawler “Roc Amadour” was original built in 1973 by Ateliers & Chantiers de la Manche, Dieppe, France as hull # 1231. After fit out she sailed under various names e.g., Boðasteinur, Patricia IX, and Roc Amadour TG 340. She eventually underwent an extensive rebuilt in Norway and for many years was homeported in the Danish city of Vagar, in the Faroe Islands, southeast of Iceland. Unfortunately in March 2010 she was sold to a ship breaker in Grenaa, Denmark and now sadly awaits her fate with the breakers cutting torch.
     
    This build was from a Heller 1/200 scale kit to which I added detail such as: PE railings and ladders, ‘clear view screens’ on several bridge windows, whip antennae & searchlight on the fly bridge, lifting eyes on fwd cargo hatches and additional detailing of the rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) and its davit. I also added a trawl net and buoys, otter door chains and rigging, stored deck gear aft and hull zincs on rudder and hull.
     
    I used stretched sprue for most of the standing rigging. However I substituted thread for the 2 deck winch cables because in reality these cables are normally heavily laden with grease and do not appear smooth like standing rigging.
     
    Ship Dimensions:
    LOA 173.8 ft / 53.00 m
    Beam 35.5 ft / 10.82 m
     
    Ship Deck Equipment:
    (2) 28t trawl winches
    (4) 10t bridle winches
    (1) Cod end winch
    (2) Vertical capstans
    (2) 6t side winches
    (1) 28t hydraulic crane
    (1) 30t net drum
     
    Main engine:
    8 cyl. Inline diesel rated @ 2400hp / 1000 rpm.
