Wanted source for scale model

15 September 2011

We are looking to have a scale model made of a Swan 46. Are you able to help with this? Do you know of a source for something like that? or perhapse we can obtain a set of builders plans so we can have one made locally?

I checked with a model maker here in Calif and his price was 12,000US–not sure how far you want to go here? His name is Ken Gardner (he built all models for Denis Conner–if that actually makes any difference?) I could check again for you if $$ is OK. Nautor have a model maker but I’m afraid they would make Ken Gardner look quite inexpensive. Let me know, Fred Davies (Swan 46 Bandit)

Feedback from Chris Clifford our Web builder and partner:
I took the liberty of posting your request on a couple of superyacht forums I’m a member of and have only had one response back thus far:
IBS models, Sarzana, Italy +39 0187 630216
Technomodel, Genoa, Italy +39 010 6513528
BIT & GML srlCorridonia,Italy +39 0733 281273

I believe Holland would be good but definitely way too expensive down these parts!
