Well I would like to say that these pictures of the large model boat we have here are from the 1951 film Captain Horatio Hornblower with Gregory Peck. However this is not really true. This model was used during filming of the Television series Hornblower made much later.
Much of the filming for this series was done out on the Black Sea.
A good friend of mine Mr Martin Lambert has recently purchased this and is busy putting the finishing touches before it goes on display. He is an expert on anything maritime and so this is just perfect for him – and for me it is a link to the Film World.
