If it’s model ships you’re after . . .


 . . . here in London it might occur to you to look in The National Maritime Museum, but I recommend trying the Science Museum first.
 

They have a fabulous collection of models of all kinds of commercial and military ships, including this one, the steam yacht Solway, which I found particularly useful.


I was just finishing the above painting when I stumbled upon the Titanic board game below - and I had thought I was being callous when painting those sailors in the water! More details of this game and others on Isn’t Life Terrible.


As I type, a big box of my paintings is on a boat to Finland. Am I worried? Hmm. Anyway, here are a few more of the models in the Science Museum.
