I rarely find anyone who does what I have always done on different forums!
But I too used to make patterns for just about anything.
Currently , just to keep my hand and eye "in", I do slot cars.









I have no idea why you have 2 1/32nd scale Amilcars.  The image arrangements for this forum are a complete pain. I can never just put up more than one without this happening and then I can't delete one of the doubles.
The Honda is the Hondola, designed by Lola at the time.  These are cast in resin for PreWing Models from my patterns.
I have done this for decades (first pattern was 1971!), raised a family on it and now just do it to keep busy for friends.




The Amilcar sits on photo-etch wheels that I designed as well as nobody did 19" skinny wheels for slot cars. Done for RS Slotracing. I do all his masters.

Model railway stuff for N-Drive.







Ah, we seem to have cracked it.  The top 2 are in 1mm nickel silver to fit N-Drive's 9mm gauge chassis. The Aynmouth lobster boat, drawn from Charlotte in the town, is in 1/76th scale for N-Drive's burgeoning scenic ranges.  For which I've also done Nissen huts, a Fifie fishing boat, a Crossley WW1 tender and a 1/43rd scale Triumph Model H motorbike.

I suppose the most impressive model so far would be this one...a 1/6th scale pattern for a kit of a Vincent Black Shadow motorbike.  This took a long time to to!







Etc.

Been a brass basher since I was 13.

Cheers,

One of three Rivas I made for owners. Entirely scratchbuilt from then Unavailable Riva company drawings. 1/12th scale.

Miss Britain III in aluminium, containing fully piped, fully wired Napier Sea Lion engine.  Totally scratchbuilt from measurements taken at Pitsea Museum before the council threw it away.
Miss America X , scratchbuilt for an American architect in 1/8th scale. 4 Packard 2500M V 12s with pipes and wires, batteries, superchargers and carbs.  Even 2 Teddy bears to cover marks I accidentally left on the seats! This was 5 Feet-3" long.  Now in Artie's restaurant in Fairfax, Virginia.













Cheers,
Martin

just as a matter of interest, do you call yourself Beaches on another well known website solely geared towards shipping and nostalgia related to that topic. , as I have seen your diorama of the little rowing boat on  another web forum, under that name.

if memory serves me correctly, you are also a superb artist of sea and ship seascapes…………..could you show us some of these on your thread that I have created for you.


thanks, neil.
