Scale boats and ships are generally motorized (electric) and are usually built to a set of plans that attempt to accurately model a vessel from another period or a vessel currently in service somewhere around the world. Ships of any scale are welcome but the most common seem to be ¼” to the foot and 1/8” to the foot. We have several scale meets each boating season and set up a navigation course so that skippers can test their skills at docking, navigating channels, maneuvering in tight quarters and other boating skills. Bring your models to the pond, finished or not. We like to compare notes and there’s usually a lot of Q & A time to share ideas and ‘how to’s’. There are a number of websites and scale suppliers to help with everything from complete kits to the smallest parts for all scales. The Useful Links page lists a number of these sites.
