  • Model boats or ships in film scenes.

    It's not surprising that this is in Sons of the Sea (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 Web of Evidence needs to be examined closely:

                Model ships obviously feature heavily in Lady Hamilton (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:

                  http://modelshipsinthecinema.com/wp/

                          As it's Born of the Sea (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.
