Members of the Scottish Fisheries Museum Model Boat Club have been busy over the winter months refreshing their display case within the museum’s Historic Boatyard. A striking new feature is the full-width mural that has been painted in the back of the case to give a fitting backdrop for the models. Keen-eyed visitors will notice features of Ansturther harbour and the Firth of Forth, with the models now sailing on their own painted “sea”.
The list of boats has also been updated with some new arrivals and some refurbishments to old favourites. As ever, a wide range of craft are on show, ranging from a steam powered launch to a ship in a bottle - all aspects fo boat modelling are represented, thanks to the skills and different interests of the members.
The list of models is available here: SFM Model Boat Club Display 2023
The display is on show within the museum’s Historic Boatyard (Gallery 9) during opening hours.
