New Deans Marine Shipment

If you’ve been looking for Deans Marine kits on our website, you probably noticed that we’ve been out of stock on a number of the more popular products. But, we recently received a new shipment from Deans Marine. So, if you’ve been waiting for your ship to come in, check out the new stock!

Christiaan Bruning – RC Ready kit from Deans Marine

For those of you not familiar with this line of kits from the UK, the company makes a line of very fine kits designed for RC operation. They featured fiberglass hulls and details in plastic, wood, cast alloy, resin, and photo etched brass.

There’s a wide range of subjects including harbor tugs, trawlers, warships and such. But, one of the more interesting offerings are their large, modern merchant ships.

They offer several, mostly in 1/96 or 1/100 scales. The models are large and ready for RC operation, but they also make really interesting static displays. Their Fairwind kit, is 1/76-scale, very close to railroad modelers’ HO scale, which would make for a really interesting addition to a port side railroad layout.

The Deans Marine also produces a line of Compact kits, which is made up of smaller vessels, mostly at the same scale as the big ships. These kits are also design for RC operation, but their smaller sizes make them a bit handier to take to the water, with most models being under 20″ long.

Here’s just a small selection of the Deans Marine kits we carry. Get ready for Summer and check out the full line at Ages of Sail.
