Powered Boat Modellers

Powered Boat Modellers

Social media has brought a disparate group of like minded marine modellers together and formed Powered Boat Modellers. The group has an ethos of aspiration, we try to be the best modellers that we can be, with fresh models to exhibit every year.

This group is about self-improvement with nobody knowing all the answers! We are happy to take the input and feedback from a much wider group than would normally be the case with an average model boat club to help us to be the best! That process of swapping ideas, challenging your skills, sharing knowledge and different ways of working is invaluable for improving modelling techniques. The wide knowledge of real vessels and the variety of different modelling subjects held within the group all helps with the making of authentic models.

Powered Boat Modellers

Do we make toy boats or are our models true to scale, have a realistic atmosphere and will be capable of taking to the water under radio control?

Whilst we don’t take ourselves too seriously, we do try to exhibit to the highest standards of model building and painting. We share a passion for authenticity, with extensive research going into our models, we obtain photographs, plans and try to visit the real thing to do our models justice. We are obviously proud of the excellent quality models in our group and are happy to offer advice to any newcomers to the hobby as we want all to see how high-quality working models can be produced.
