    In the 1942 religious film of that name, The Great Mr. Handel consigns two orphans into the nautical care of Andrew Leigh with a set dressing over the fireplace so we know the Foundling Hospital is a quasi-naval establishment.

            He's a retired seafaring man with a ship in a case and a nephew (Barry Foster) in a jam.

              We see the progress of this ship through the Dogger Bank.

                I presume the topic relates to models in scenes intended as models rather than models simulating a life-sized vessel. Anyway, two spring to mind:-
                1. The 39 Steps (1959) Regents Park scene - located an image here: https://www.reelstreets.com/films/39-steps-the-1959/ (as a newcomer, if there are any forum rules for posting links or images from third party sources, please advise..I don't want to end up in the soup over a breach of copyright! Thanks)
                2. Rogue's Yarn (1957) Two scenes with model boats. One on a boating lake and another where an "automatic pilot" is being demonstrated in a water tank. This is probably my favourite black and white film of the 50s era.

                  Hello Sacza,
                  You'll never get into trouble by posting a link to another web site (unless it contains something naughty like porn or a virus). It's up to each reader to virus check the link before downloading it.

                  Steve

                      Goodness knows if anyone can fathom what this chap is up to with Raquel Welch who plays Fathom in Fathom (1967):

                      But there's a model ship there anyway.

                        Ian Wilson's actually in The Lady craved Excitement (1950), albeit with an inappropriate name of "Mugsy", and the craving lady is Hy Hazell:

                        The model on history lover Mugsy's desk might well be his rendition of The Golden Hind.

                            A nice camera rigging through the ship's rigging as Alfred Lynch ventures into forbidden waters in West 11 (1963):

                              John Carlisle doesn't think much of Billy Murray's work in NEW SCOTLAND YARD "The Wrong-Un":

                                Not the ship that's ferrying the lads home, but one purchased from Rene Ray's shop in Farewell Again (1937).
