We just received a new shipment of kits from Deans Marine kits from the U.K. We’ve updated our inventory and now have most of the kits back in stock. Here are some examples of these fine kits:
For those of you who are not familiar with this line of kits, here’s a text clip from the Deans Marine website:
All of the models in the Deans Marine range are designed to be working radio controlled scale models to constant scales i.e. warships to 1/96-1/100, launches to 1/24. service craft 1/48. Each model is tried and tested on the water for sea keeping and handling.
Hulls are of lightweight fibreglass. Decks and superstructures are constructed from computer printed, 6 colour coded plastic.
The kits are complete with fittings cast in lightweight alloy for the fine detail, with larger items cast in plastic to save weight but retaining all the detail required.
To complement this, fragile items such as stanchions, ladders, dial sights and lattice masts are in etched brass. All kits are complete with rudder, tiller arm and lock bolt, prop tubes and stainless steel shafts. Our Kits contain a full size plan or plans, instruction book with suggested motors, couplings etc.
We carry more than two dozen different Deans Marine kits. A few of these have yet to be added to our website including the Z37 Narvik, Kristina Motorlogger, Mercandian President, Zulu, Dufresne, Pieter Boele, Medea, and the M15 Monitor. Look for these on our website in the next couple weeks.
Deans Marine kits are designed for RC operation, but also make great display models.
