  • Model boats or ships in film scenes.

    It's not surprising that this is in [B]Sons of the Sea[/B] (1939) as much of the film is based at Dartmouth Naval College, but perhaps more surprising to see Simon Lack and Peter Shaw in colour:

          Hello]

          So far I have found three "truths" (learned from various error messages) with regards to attached images:

          1) Cannot be wider than 600 pixels.

          2) Maximum number of images per post is 5.

          3) The sum of all attachment files sizes cannot be greater than 1 MB.

          And there could be others...

          Hope this helps.

              As this thread doesn't like full-sized screencaps for some reason, the [B]Web of Evidence[/B] needs to be examined closely:

                Model ships obviously feature heavily in [B]Lady Hamilton[/B] (1941), particularly in the climatic Battle of Trafalgar, but here is one playing a model not pretending to be full-sized version in Vivian Leigh's front parlour:

                  Hello

                  Probably already mentioned somewhere but there is a fantastic web site covering just this topic for all films:

                    Kathleen Harrison's presents for her "boys" include this:

                          As it's [B]Born of the Sea[/B] (1949), it's not surprising these make an appearance:

                            Gerald I wonder if the superb model work created for Raise the Titanic might be mentioned and well documented on the extras of the Blu-Ray. The rusty wreck can be seen languishing away in Malta, a great shame indeed.
                            Sorry if I'm a bit off topic but do love that film.

                              There is an article with many pictures (Titanic model during and currently as well as a movie slide show) on the "Model Ships in the Cinema" web site:
