    In the 1942 religious film of that name, [B]The Great Mr. Handel[/B] 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.

                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: [url]https://www.reelstreets.com/films/39-steps-the-1959/[/url] (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.

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

                      But there's a model ship there anyway.

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

                        [ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","data-attachmentid":66972}[/ATTACH]

                        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 [B]West 11[/B] (1963):

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

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