The English oyster smacks

The smacks were traditional fishing boats that operated along the British coast. This smack was built to plans of Douglas Stone in 1909 for use in the neigbourhood of the Thames Estuary. They used special dredges, one of which is shown on deck of the model.

There is more information on sailing old Colchester Essex oyster smacks.


The oyster smack model, photos, description and dimensions

The model was built to the plans by Douglas Stone 1909 by a very experienced model maker. There are more pictures, several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging. Click images to enlarge!

This model of the oyster smack is a fine detailed piece of work, a masterpiece. The ship model was built with sails close to the wind on starboard tack. The starboard side of the hull has no planking to show the frames and the interior equipment.
The ship model is 1 : 24 scale. Length is 67 cm, width 15 cm, height 70 cm.

There is a display case for the model made of birch wood and (rather poor, high reflection) acrylic glass which may be used as protection when picking up the model with your car. The display case will not be shipped on air cargo. The case is 73 cm long, 23 cm wide, 73 cm high.

The model looks best when set without a display case.


This model has already been sold. The pictures and the data are shown in the gallery of the ship models sold only to let enthusiasts and model makers enjoy the photos and maybe get ideas or some guidance, if someone builds such a model by himself.
