SELWAY FISHER MODEL BOATS

MODEL BOAT PLANS & MANUAL BASED ON THE
SELWAY FISHER RANGE OF YACHT & BOAT DESIGNS

 

 

 

 

 

 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 drawn up a series of plans specifically for model making.

To go with the model boat plans, I have written my eighth manual (this one called Model Boat Building in Wood) which describes some of 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.

See the link at the top of the page for more details and ordering.

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

 

Apart from the models in the manual, there are 18 individual model boat plans available on this site (use the link at the top of the page)
