    Gary has made some recent additions to his fleet. Here's one of the latest, Burger's "Top Times"...

    And one of the most recent, Delta's 163' "Triton" Expedition Yacht. Both the model and the yacht are spectacular works of art.

    Just visited the Captain's Models website. Love that 55' Viking! For those that are interested, there are some excellent links on this site. Definately worth a visit. :)

    Not sure if it qualifies compared to the much larger ones posted so far but SDmodelmakers in California did this replica of a 64 sportfish we built. I was pretty impressed with their attention to detail. I'd love to put in a couple Schnurle engines in it and do some real scale speed testing but with my luck someone would key up a SSB nearby and she'd go splat against a nice new shiny Viking (don't ask how I know it could happen!).

    Beautiful boat Bill! If you ever go remote, I'll race you to the minnows. I've got a Donzi Z-65 built from a Dumas kit. I can't take credit for the build. I came across it in a hobby shop. The workmanship was impeccable; the price irresistible. Most affordable boat I've owned to date...

    Beautiful Donzi Carl!, electric or gas? I'm an old RC nut too, used to fly a Royal Rudderbug, wind the rubber band up and it wagged the rudder back and forth, one push on the button and it generally pulsed the rudder left, two and it went right. Climbed while engine was running and when it ran out of fuel it glided down. Flew U-C combat for years before that (loved cutting those streamers!) Chaos's and some gliders before swithing to boats, SK Daddle Too, all the Dumas V's, tunnels and pickleforks wiping out K&B 7.5's each run with way too much nitro! Still have a few covered with dust on the shelves.

    It's electric Bill, but I have yet to run it. I'm sure you can relate. You get busy building a business (or a boat building business!) and it leaves little time for monkey business.

    Let me see if I can get this right.

    Here is a Static display model of a 86' Merritt "Seraphim" built at 1:35 scale

    the model is about 30" long.

    The aft stairs on that 180' yacht look really good.

    Where do the stairs lead? Only to the sundeck? if so, whats the use (do you know from the original design?) of being enclosed/climate controlled? Quite unusual...

    Looks nice!

    PS: what is the show it was on? is it abuot yachts?

    Yes it is unusual, The aft deck is a climate controlled room and the only way to seal it is to enclose the stairway leading up to the sun deck. The aft deck is all sliding glass so it can be an "air conditioned out side deck"

    The Westport 50M is one of several of my models used for the sales/display booths during the various european Yacht/Boat shows.
