news from DEANS MARINE

SCALE 1/24
LENGTH 740mm
BEAM 160mm

The model.
This kit is based on a glass fibre hull with rubbing strip and moulded into the surface of the hull.
The construction of the deck is light weight glass fibre moulding with pre-cut mahogany and
Obeche planks for the decking, The deck planking is supplied cut to width in Mahogany and
Main cabin, fore cabin, motor mounting, etc, are in vacformed Hi impact plastic
A full set of fittings in cast alloy, resine & brass etch is included in the kit, along with a full size
plan and a comprehesive set of instructions

This model was constructed and designed from a few pictures taken 35 years ago of this classic
broads cruiser when on holiday on the Broads at that time. How time flies ?
I was most taken with her looks and style while she was moored next to us one weekend, and
she has stuck in my mind since that time.
As there are no known plans of her that are available, this kit represent a style and type of the
craft of that era seen on the Norfolk Broads. We claim no accuracy of the model, but the name
was real and we feel that this model capture the look and style of the original craft, and even now,
she has a look and style of her own.
SNOW GOOSE Landamores Broads Cruiser
The Landamores Elanco 37 Classic Broads Cruiser. Built in 1960s, the Elanco 37 was, at that
time, the largest hire cruiser one could rent on the Norfolk Broads. 'Snow Goose' is famous on the
Broads as she is one of very few surviving examples.
First run kits release price £145.00

Yes why so small? This beauty should have been done as 1/12th for sure. Then they would have had something that folks would have been fighting to get.

30 in long is a fair size, 1:12 would be a 5 footer! Then you couldn't buy it for the shipping costs...

I think if I were to kit the model I would shoot at 16th scale which would net a 45” model. I agree that a 60” model would cost a lot more in production and shipping of the kit, and I dare say a lot less modelers stepping up to plunk down their money for the kit.

I also agree that a model in the 30” length, does not lend it’s self to the modeler for detailing to do justice to the subject being modeled.

Detailing in 1/24th

There are plenty of details in 1/24, in the 1920's- 1960's era. Thanks to the model car and train guys. The problem is when you want modern/current details, that you may have a problem. If you look around, you should be able to find what you need to do a wheelhouse interior, correct for that era yacht. CaptCB

Patmat, if you offer a model in a reasonably manageable size, like this one, there will always be the guy who wants one bigger.

I get this all the time---.

Not that he'd ever buy it even if it were available, but---.
