Welcome

This website has been produced to:-

Illustrate to those looking for a restorer of model ships, galleons, yachts, toy trains, steam plants et al a selection of the various projects I have undertaken.

Inform that commissions are undertaken to restore, repair, build specific kits, models or parts thereof.

Inspire others wanting to restore similar items themselves that they can do it too.

Advise how I have tackled the restoration or repair as so many items have their playworn ‘wounds’ needlessly exacerbated from attempts by people who don’t fully understand how to do it.

Advertise items for sale. If there is something which takes your fancy please contact me.

Ask that if you have old models to dispose of, or are looking to have a workshop cleared out then before putting them in the skip I would be interested to hear from you.

Finally if this site helps someone to successfully repair a much loved model then I am delighted. I am quite happy to offer what advice I can (which may be as simple as putting you in touch with another modeller or website) if you want to contact me. I don’t accept any liability if the advice doesn’t work!

So thank you for taking the trouble to read this website and happy modelling!

The following pictures are a sample of some of my projects.
