Medea
Named after a woman in Greek Mythology the Medea has a history as interesting as her namesake. She was completed in 1904 in 51 days a record time or those days. Build on a steel hull and fitted out with exotic timbers inside. She was the last word in luxury and was used by her owner a Mr Macallister Hall a British army officer for social and hunting trips around the Isles and Lochs of Scotland
Her engine was a 254 HP compound reciprocating, giving her a top speed of 10 knots. She was converted to oil in 1964.
During WW1 she was purchased by the French navy and armed with a 75mm gun and depth charges and an observation balloon she was operated as a convoy escort. After the war she returned to UK and was used in the Mediterranean by members of parliament. During WW11 she was taken up by the Royal Navy and stationed in the Thames as a barrage balloon vessel She later was stationed in Scotland and used by the Norwegian navy as an accommodation vessel for Norwegian Commando officers. By 1946 she was cruising on the south coats of the U.K. In the 1950 - 60s Medea became a charter yacht and finally sold to Swedish owners in 1969. She then was purchased by Paul Whittier who restored her to he 1904 condition and donated her to the San Diego Maritime museum in 1973
After a long and interesting history serving in Three navies under six national flags she is still afloat and steaming in the San Diego Maritime Museum, giving VIP trips approx. twice a month.

Redshanks
Known as ”Raised Quarter Deck” coastal steamer, these small ships were larger versions of the famous "puffer" Bridge and engines were aft and the leaving a well deck forward protected by bulwarks.
By far the most popular size of these vessels was between 120- 150 feet. This type of ship was used by most of the coastal sea traffic and in all of the main fleets engaged in short coastal voyages of the era.
Constructed in 1920, the Redshanks is representative of the type many served until the late 1960s, and a few survive to this day.
The oldest still surviving member of this class of ship is the Robin, which is now based in London at Canary Wharf and will be part of the New London Museum
The kit is based on a ship that sailed from the Port of Ponders Bridge, near Ramsey, Cambridgeshire.
She served the East Coast ports with general cargo and coastal passengers from the Humber to the docks of London until the late 1940,s when she was sold out of service.
She was powered by compound machinery giving top speed of 9 knots on a tonnage of 287 tons gross
No records are available of her subsequent fate, but she is believed to have been converted to a sand dredger with a priestman grab crane mounted forward.

Timrix
The Timrix was constructed as the “Ellie” by Cochranes of Selby.
Whilst still on the slips she passed ownership to Metcalf Motor Coatsterd Ltd and was completed and launched as the Nellie M in March 1972. The Nellis M was designed as a bulk cargo and container carrier and was launched by the elder daughter of the founder of the firm.
She was then sold to an Irish company possibly Arklow and was sunk by I.R.A. action in the late 1970s.
The ship was raised and refurbished. during her spell in the shipyard she was lengthened by approx 7 meters and changed into a two hatch vessel. A later refit in the early 90s saw the number two hatch raised.
She was sold out of the Rix Company service in 1998 and was replaced with a more modern ship which is a sister to three others in the Rix fleet.
The Timrix was powered by a 1160 bhp Allen type 8pbcs 12-D engine propulsion engine which gave a one way speed on trials of 16 knots and a mean speed of 12.9 knots. The ship has a dead-weight of 1160 tons. 
Details of the kit:
Scale: 1/75
Length: 965mm (38")
Beam: 153mm (6")
The model is based on a glassfibre hull with full plating, freeing ports, bulwarks and port detail moulded into the hull. Computer generated plastic, printed in 6 colours is used for the decks and superstructure to give quick and crisp assembly.
A full set of fittings in cast light alloy and plastic give the finishing touch to the model adding the vital clutter that is so much part of this attractive little merchant ships appeal.
As in all of the Deans kits a set of running gear is included, consisting of the propshaft, tiller and full instructions keyed to a FULL SIZE plan to assist in the construction of the model.
Painting instructions are part of the construction notes with tips for using the latest car spray ACRYLIC paint which gives a fast and hard wearing finish.

Patrol Boat, River - "Canned Heat"
This is the fiberglass hull version.

In 1965 a river patrol force was formed to control the rivers of Vietnam designated “Game Warden” and was controlled by the U.S. Navy. They had no craft suitable for the work, and the press of time precluded the normal design processes.
Approaches were made to the commercial market, and a craft was found that generally matched the requirements.
In 1965 the firm of United boat builders of Bellingham, Washington, started the first of the MK1 PBRs with an order for 160 of these craft. The craft was a 9.5 meter fiber glass boat powered by two water jets and were capable of 25 knots.
In 1967 a further order for 80 boats was placed with modifications reflecting operational experience, these were designated MK11 (the subject of our kit). When the craft were in service, with weapons and extra weight, plus water absorption into the hull they were well over 1000 kgs overweight, hence the bows down attitude at rest. The craft served throughout the Vietnam war, and many were retained by the Vietnamese forces after the departure of the American forces.

Details of the kit:
Scale: 1/24
Length: 16-15/16" (430mm)
Beam: 5-11/16" (145mm)
Sailing weight: 2kgs

A departure from the norm with this new addition to the fast launch range of kits that makes a excellent companion for the Swift boat in our range.
The kit of this well known fast craft is based on a one piece vacformed hull. To speed assembly the deck, wheelhouse, motor mount, and nicads tray are also vacformed in styrene.
As with all the Deans range of kits, a complete set of fittings is included, plus all the weapons carried by these heavily armed fast craft. A full size plan, and comprehensive instruction book aid assembly, and to add the finishing touch a complete set of decals in precut waterproof vinyl and self adhesive crests.
Due to the light weight of the model, the on the water performance with 6 volts and the recommended motor is outstanding, and with its short waterline length and the forward propeller and shaft set up, fast torque turns are possible, if nerve racking.
This model is also available with a lightweight glass fiber hull moulding at extra cost, for modelers well used to working in this medium and wishing to fit one of the small jet units available on the market.
Add $70.00 to above price for fiberglass hull.

Double plank on bulkhead hull, Brass cannons, four sheets of detailed brass etched parts. CNC cut Walnut and Ply components. Black and Natural rigging hemp. Fully detailed full size plans and a comprehensive construction manual.

H.M.S. Agamemnon, a 64 gun ship of the line, was designed by the famous Naval Architect Sir Thomas Slade. Sir Thomas also drafted the plans for H.M.S. Victory. Built by Henry Adams at Bucklers Hard she was launched in 1781 after four years of building. Agamemnon became one of the most famous vessels of the Royal Navy. Nelson, who referred to her as his favourite ship, commanded her between 1793 and 1796. It was in Agamemnon that Nelson lost the sight of his right eye during the siege of Calvi in 1794. He also met Lady Hamilton while on a diplomatic visit to Naples in 1793. Agamemnon was at the centre of events through three of the most turbulent decades of British Naval history. Fighting battles at Saints, Copenhagen and Trafalgar. She later served in the West Indies participating in the battle of Santo Domingo, and then in South American waters, until she was wrecked in Maldonado Bay off the coast of Uruguay in 1809. Divers are now excavating the wreck after her recent discovery.

HM Schooner Pickle
Kit includes:
Double plank on bulkhead construction in lime and walnut; all decking in high quality Tanganyika strip; 6 x 12pdr turned brass carronades, fully rigged and complete with walnut carriage assemblies; detailed brass etched components; over 500 copper plates; ship's boats in high quality resin with walnut components and brass fittings including oars, grapnels and boat hooks; precision CNC cut and profiled walnut and ply components; brass nameplate; all required blocks, black & natural hemp to rig the model as shown; high quality birch dowel for the masting; fully detailed actual scale plans and two comprehensive step by step colour instruction manuals including constructional photos of the prototype and technical drawings.

Forever associated with Admiral Nelson’s final and most historic victory, the Battle of Trafalgar 1805, Pickle was chosen to carry the News of Nelson’s victory and death back to England.

Commanded by Lieutenant John Richards Lapenotiere, Pickle was not directly involved in the Battle of Trafalgar but was permanently busy rescuing both friend and foe from a watery death. By 6pm the muster list for Pickle showed a total of 160 prisoners taken on board, the majority of these coming from the burning French Achille. Given the size of Pickle and the fact that she had a crew of just 40 it is remarkable that Lapenotiere was not only able to rescue so many but that they were then able to prevent the prisoners from taking Pickle as their own. After the battle, with Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood now in command, every ship, including Pickle, was required to maintain the blockade of Cadiz.

Between the 22 and 25 of October, Lapenotiere continued rescuing seaman and prisoners and began offloading them to other ships, including Dreadnought, Euryalus, Revenge and Victory, all the while battling to survive the storm that was blowing in from the south west. On the morning of the 26 October 1805, Lapenotiere was signalled to come aboard Euryalus where he received written orders from Collingwood to sail for Plymouth with the dispatches. Knowing that the bearer of dispatches would receive a promotion, it was customary to choose a favoured officer for the task and Collingwood’s choice of Lapenotiere is often attributed to an act of gratitude. It is said that, while Lapenotiere was a passenger onboard a ship also conveying Lord Collingwood, an order was given on deck to the man at the wheel. Lapenotiere, realising that if the order were obeyed the ship would be on the rocks, immediately gave another order and saved the ship. Collingwood thanked Lapenotiere saying “If ever I have the opportunity I will do you a service.” It is also said that on receipt of his orders Collingwood reminded Lapenotiere of this promise saying “Now take these dispatches to England; you will receive £500 and your commander’s commission. Now I have kept my word.”

Unfortunately no evidence of either of these events exists and Collingwood’s choice of Lapenotiere is better explained by the fact that Pickle was probably the only ship that Collingwood could afford to spare given his current circumstance. This is also backed up by Collingwood’s letter to William Marsden stating “dispatches containing the account of the Action of the 21st Inst, and detailing the proceedings of the Fleet to the 24th will be delivered to you by Lieut Lapenotiere, commanding the Pickle Schooner … having no means of speedier, or safer Conveyance with me at present.”

At noon the same day, Lapenotiere and Pickle departed for England but his voyage was to be challenging to say the least. For the next seven days Pickle battled through stormy seas and, with her pumps blocked, the crew were reduced to forming a human chain in order to bale with buckets. On October 31st, with continuing gale force winds Lapenotiere ordered four of his 12 pounder carronades to be thrown overboard in an attempt to keep the schooner from being swallowed by the sea. November 2nd brought weather of the opposite extreme, but still no rest for the crew. With calm seas and no wind the sweeps had to be employed just to keep Pickle heading toward England.

On 4th November 1805 Pickle finally reached Falmouth were Lapenotiere landed at shore in Pickle’s boat. From this point Lapenotiere set off on his now famous post chaise using at least 21 changes of horses to travel more than 270 miles in 37 hours and costing £46.19s.1d, more than six months wages for a Lieutenant. Lapenotiere reached his goal of the Admiralty at around 1am on the 6th November and announced to William Marsden, First Secretary to the Admiralty, “Sir, we have gained a great victory, but we have lost Lord Nelson.”

Brannaren
The Brannaren was representative of a small coastal tanker of the early thirties, of a size and type to be found all around the world. Built in Malmo and completed in1933, the Brennaren first saw service in the Swedish Navy before being sold to private owners. Few scale model manufacturers dare include a tanker in their range, such is their complexity. The Brennaren is a must in any serious modellers collection.

The hull is a fully detailed GRP molding, decks and superstructure are high quality precision cut birch ply with printed overlays. The pipe work around the decks and their valves form the main and unique feature of the Brennaren. Installation has been made easier by the nature of the fittings and the accurate separate underlay drawing provided. A full compliment of white metal fittings along with all dowel, wire and cordage make the finished model.
