Today’s post profiles the work of Wayne Spicer, a very talented modeler who has built an impressive number of our classic fleet. Wayne has been modeling for approx. 17 years & is a volunteer model maker at the Maritime Museum in Auckland (on Tuesdays). Wayne has built a number of square riggers including Endeavour, Bounty (3), Victory (3), Spanish galleon.
While at the Museum Wayne meet Rod Marler, the owner of the Logan yacht ‘Little Jim’, Rod commissioned Wayne to build a model of LJ & this got Wayne hooked on Logan boats. Wayne told me that he enjoyed the classic lines of the Logans and how they showed the evolution of sailing designs since the late 1800’s. You will see from the the list below that he has built quite a few.
BUILT TO DATE:
Jessie Logan (2)
Little Jim (2)
Most of Wayne’s models are made from scratch which means they are not kit sets, fyi below are some photos of the model making process for Nomad.
Wayne very kindly donated the model of Gypsy to the Gypsy Trust
I have emailed you Wayne’s ph #
No I think Corona has had enough glory of late Richard, her head might swell too much with a model as well!
Alan, whats his number? I think he should build one for CORONA. Richard Allen / Director
