Scale Model Boats -
There are plenty of members sailing scale boats. These vary in size from 150mm to about 2 metres, and everything in between. (that's 6 inches to about 6 feet) Scales vary from about 1:6 scale to 1:96 scale, depending on the type of model. Within the club there is a variety of scale models - working boats, pleasure craft, RNLI & Naval craft. There are private yachts, speedboats, air-boats and paddle steamers appear from time to time. Older models keep appearing, as does the occasional model that is solely a figment of a vivid imagination. Most of the models run on batteries, but there are also some scale ships running on steam.
Some of the craft in the club are kit built from one of the many suppliers (see LINKS page for a list) some are scratch built from plans, some are ready to run and some are 'rescued' from a garage / loft / skip / well known site that begins with the letter E, renowned for selling stuff.
