 I have often had requests from model boat makers who have visited the Selway Fisher site for plans specifically aimed at the model maker and based on full-size Selway Fisher designs. Most of these requests have been for steam and motor launches and I have sometimes sold partial or cut down sets of the full-size boat plans to the model maker. This is far from ideal and so, coupled with the sheer fun I have had over the years in making both static and working model boats, I have started to draw up a series of plans specifically for model making.

To start with, I have written my eighth manual (this one called Model Boat Building in Wood) which describes the various model boat making methods in wood and which gives the details and drawings to make a range of models including a Balsa Power 225 and 4m Mini Yacht (both for radio control), a beautiful bread butter half model of the Swallow Tancook Whaler that will grace any wall and a stitch tape (tack and tape) model of the Christine canoe.

 Along with the manual I have started drawing up a series of plans for model boats based on full-sized Selway Fisher designs. The first is of the steam or electric Edwardian 26 launch and if you go to the www.makeamodelboat.com site you will see details of other model boat plans which will become available shortly.

 Individual model boat plans now available :-

  • 26' Edwardian steam launch.
  • Power 225 power cruiser.
  • 4m Mini yacht.
  • Christine open canoe.
  • 17' Rufus motor/work boat.
  • 25' Windsor Slipper Launch.

 Coming soon :-

  • 17'9" Fanny the Fantail Launch.
  • Tideway 14 Pocket Cruiser.
 Furthermore, if you are looking to build one of the other Selway Fisher designs as a model, let me know and I'II be able to tell you whether and when I will be able to produce a set of model making plans for it.


For the new Selway Fisher Model Boat site which now includes photos of the Selway Fisher Office models (over 30 in number) and a section showing the latest Winsor 25 model under construction, go to

 

Below are photographs of some of the models that can be made from details in the Model Boat Building in Wood manual.
