Christmas open days at Deans Marine
« on: November 27, 2017, 12:51:44 PM »

  Dear  Modellers
I thought that you might like more news from Deans Marine at the edge of the world in Farcet.
We will be holding our Christmas open weekend on the 16 - 17th December 10 am 4pm. The shop will be open for all the last minute parts and goodies you require for modeling over the holiday period.
The exhibition room overlooking the pond will be open so if you wish to bring a model along and have a sail, we will be pleased to see you..
You can keep yourself and the model in the warm under cover, pilot from inside if it is really cold, how is that for being spoilt. ?
Tea, coffee will be available over the weekend, for something a bit stronger for anti freeze purposes, you are welcome to bring your own
  Bring you own mince pies, funny hats and Christmas pullovers, recommended.
We will have all the new release from 2017 on display, plus some prototypes of new model for 2018.
The main showroom will be open if you wish to have a good look around at  the rest of our display models.
Other Traders will be attending, booked at present. Linkspan Models, Mika Allsop flags, Mouldeans hulls, Kaths bit & Bobs
Any further enquires, please contact us at 01733 244166 or by e-mail at deansmarine@yahoo.co.uk or see our website for more details
Regards
And a very merry Christmas to all our customers.
Deans Marine

I will be there on the Saturday too.  Always a good enjoyable event.
Hopefully to also gain more info on the Agincourt semi-kit progress.  Will bring wallet & camera just in case  {-)
I might even bring the back half of my build, just for fun.

Deans Marine - ASR 63'


The design of these Air Sea Rescue launches was an adaptation of a Motor Gun Boat being developed by British Power Boats for the Royal Navy, (see the M.G.B. in our range).

These craft were the first to be fitted with aircraft type turrets from the start. After experience in the Channel these vessels earned a great reputation amongst their crew members. The racy lines of the craft added a touch of glamour when the outline of the type was used for the arm badge worn by the crews.

Although the Whalebacks saw service around the coasts of Britain, some of the type were sent to the Med and to the coasts of India. During the Dieppe raid when some of the craft were attacked and sunk with loss of life they were more heavily armed with a 20mm machine cannon on the stern (see the B.P.C.63ft)

Details of the kit

Scale 1/24 Length 812mm Beam 215mm Sailing weight 1.8kg

The 2 models in this range of craft are based on a lightweight glass fibre hull capturing the racy lines of the prototype. The deck is of 1/8" resin bonded marine plywood fitted to the top of the rubbing strip which is moulded into the hull for easy construction.

The complete superstructure moulding, along with the carly float, battery box, are all in vacformed plastic to speed construction. The gun turrets are formed in clear acrylic along with a full set of weapons and fittings to complement the FULL SIZE PLAN and instructions.
