Deans Marine Started in 1981 when the proprietor Ron Dean had the idea that parts for model ships could be produced on a part time basis to part finance his lifelong hobby of radio controlled model ship building. (Quote from the P.E.P. award brochure 1983)Deans Marine a Uk based company producing a large range of scale model war ships and merchant vesuals constantly improving their quality, and the older kits gradually being upgraded. Hulls are fibre glass with some surface detail, and the kits contain white metal and resin fittings with good instructions and plans.

Deans Marine Motor Gun Boat 77
Deans Marine Motor Gun Boat 77
Ref: 2011
Following the design of the SGB and its shortcomings,
The Admiralty working in conjunction with British power Boats designed a MGB to fill similar duties but with the simpler construction than that of the SGB design
In 1941 the type 74 design was produced with similar lines to the 1938 PV design but with a considerably stronger structure. This batch is based on one of this group commanded by Lt Cmd Hitchens of E Boat alley fame.
The success of this design resulted in a second order in 1942 for the craft with order for boats from numbers 107 -176. They were powered with 3 shafts x 3 Packard engines giving 4,050 BHP with a top speed of 42 knots in good condition. Weapon fit was one 2pdr gun and a twin 20mm powered mount and two twin 303 Vickers or Lewis gun on pedestal mountings. She carried a compliment of 12 officers and crew

Details of the kit :

Deans Marine Fairmile D
Deans Marine Fairmile D
Ref: 2009
The ‘Dog Boats’ - the D class Fairmile MTBs and MGBs - formed one of the classes of wooden boat produced by the Fairmile Marine Company. The history of that company is a tribute to one man’s vision and drive and to the positive and speedy decision-making that resulted from the existence of an urgent requirement: exactly the conditions that existed in 1939. It is remarkable that such decisions had to be taken with so little long-term planning to make rapid expansion possible, and that the man, Noel Macklin, should be there ready to take risks and invest money, even before the slow response and reactionary thinking of the Admiralty had taken only faltering steps.

The type D was produced to combat the known advantages of the German S-boat [from Schnellboot, but always called E-boats by the Allies]. Their low silhouette and excellent sea-keeping qualities were much sought after, and they were more
heavily armed that the British ‘short boats’.
The lines of the D were developed at the Admiralty by William John Holt, then head of the boat section of the Royal Corps of Naval Constructors. The distinctive hull form was developed, figuratively speaking, by splicing a destroyer type bow on to a fast motor boat stern. The hull form was tested in the Admiralty Experimental Tank at Haslar towards the end of 1939, though with the testing of variations it was not to take its final shape until March 1941. It was then linked with the powerful American Packard petrol engine, again provided under Lend-Lease, with four engines, and four propeller shafts fitted into the wide after hull.
Fairmile construction techniques had proved themselves, and the D type was built in some thirty small shipyards in the UK, being supplied in kit form, as for the previous designs.
The prototype D, MGB601, was constructed by Tough Brothers at Teddington on the Thames, and not far from Cobham. She was laid down on 1 June 1941, lauched on 4 October, and after trials, handed over on 20 February 1942.

Deans Marine Air Sea Rescue Launch 63
Deans Marine Air Sea Rescue Launch 63
Ref: 2007
These high speed craft were designed and constructed in 1941 by British Power Boat Co for the Royal Navy as coastal Anti Submarine craft. Power by 3500 b.h.p Power Napier sea lion engines giving a top speed of 30 knots,. The craft were numbered from 22-39 + 49 The concept was that the craft sat in harbour and when a surfaced submarine was spotted these fast craft left harbour at high speed and attacked the submarine with depth charges.
The twin .5 Vickers machine guns were used to keep the submarines guns crews suppressed. As these craft had no asdic fitted and the only methods of finding a submerged submarine was to stop and lower a hand held hydrophone over the side it quickly became clear that the concept was flawed from the start.
These craft were then used a Motor Gun Boats, but as they only carried light weapons and the top speed of approx 30 knots loaded they came off the worst when faced with German E boats with armed with 20mm machine cannons and a top speed of 40 knots.
At the time, early19 41-42 they were used in the coastal force battles in the narrow seas of the channel as M.G.B.s the depth charges were dropped close to the enemy ships in the hope that the explosion would damage the hull, lightly armed and with 3000 gallons of high octane fuel aboard they suffered horrific losses until replaced with more heavily armed craft.
Later used as Rescue launches even in this they were not effective as the access to the cabin was complicated and there was no space for stretchers for any wounded airmen and the harsh ride in anything but flat calm was very uncomfortable and could result in broken bones for the rescued survivors.

Details Of Kit :
The model of this craft, is one of the fastest M.A.S.B. to serve during W.W. II, with a top speed of over 30 knots. The hull of this model is moulded in lightweight glassfibre, with a moulded in rubbing strip that forms a seating for the 1.5mm PLASTIC deck.
The superstructure cabin is a vacforming in HI Impact styrene sheet and all deck Structure parts are in pre-printed 1mm colour plastic. To complement this most attractive model a full set of fittings in cast metal and resin is included along with propeller shafts, tubes and rudders.

Deans Marine MTB 488
Deans Marine MTB 488
Ref: 2008
MTB 476 was a former British Power Boat MGB that was reclassified as an MTB.
She was fitted with two 18” Torpedo Tubes and a power operated 6pdr gun was added forward plus a twin 20mm Oerlikon aft.
They were powered with 3 shafts x 3 Packard engines giving 3,600 BHP with a top speed of 39 knots in good condition. The lower top speed than her sister was due to the extra weight carried by the 6pdr gun and the two torpedo tubes
Weapon fit was one 6pdr gun and a twin 20mm powered mount and two twin 303 Vickers or Lewis gun on pedestal mountings.
She carried a compliment of 12 officers and crew
Some of the 400 class were transferred after the war to the Royal Neth Navy in1943 and in 1944 numbers 459 - 466- 486- 491 to the Royal Canadian Navy.
The alternative Pennant numbers 488 was a craft commissioned on Sept 6th 1944 by her C.O Sub Lt G. F. INNES R.N.V.R. This craft was powered by 3 x Packard Marine engines with a total B.H.P 4050 giving a speed of 39 knots max and a range of 600 miles at 15 knots. She carried a crew of 17.

Deans Marine RAF Crash Tender
Deans Marine RAF Crash Tender
Ref: 2012
The two boats in the class 93 & 94 of the 46ft Crash & Rescue tenders were constructed by Vosper Ltd of Portsmouth in1952 for the R.A.F.

The hulls were of double skin mahogany on birch plywood framing. Powers was from two Rover Metorite engines of 375 hp each, This was a 8 cylinders V type engine of 18 litres Drive was to 2 X 3 blade props (both
rotating the same way) Giving a top speed of 28 + knots
Fire fighting was from two 3.5 fire monitors that could spray water of foam.
The power for the pumps was from a Ford V8 engine to give 5-600 g.p.m. This pump was also be used as a salvage pump. For rescue work she was fitted with a spring tow hook, line throwing equipment and rockets, stretchers and a portable davit.
The two craft were taken into service in 1952-53 at Calshot. They spent many year as experimental craft for it is alleged that they were designed to complement the SARO princess flying boats that spent many years at Calshot. The craft were reported to have startling acceleration and could stop in there own length once the automatic 7 sec time delay came into effect on the reverse gear.
They had a turning circle of three boat lengths at 28,5 knots. Both boats were sold from service in 1958.

Details of the kit :
The kit is based on a detailed glassfibre hull with rubbing strip, fender strip, proptube and rudder exits, moulded into the hull.
The Deck is from 1mm printed plastic. Vac-fomings supply the nicads battery tray, rudder servo mount and motor mounting for the internals.
Vacformings in clear styrolux form the forward and aft cabin assembly. Printed plastic supplies the construction for the aft cockpit.
A new system for clear windows has been developed for this model consisting of computer cut masking film which is fitted onto the clear mouldings, the cabin is then primed and painted and the film removed. Computer cut "aluminum" frames fitted onto the clear plastic for windscreens etc, cabin windows, skylights etc. Cut window frames are then applied over the edge of the clear parts. This removes one of the jobs that modelers tell us they dislike, that of cutting our complicated windows from mouldings, all similar sizes, with complex corners.
A full set of fittings in cast alloy and resin is included in the kit , along with propshaft,proellor, rudder, and tillers arm, plus decals for that finishing touch to this colourful model.
To aid construction a comprehensive instruction book and full size plan is included.
The full size craft were noted for their rocket like acceleration and stopping ability, plus outstanding handling.
The model with its boat weight of 970gms and powered by its recommended black 400 motor and nicads gives all handling characteristics of the full size craft, i,e it is a delight to drive.
Deans Marine wish to express there appreciation to VOSPER THORNYCROFT Ltd of Southhampton for the invaluable help they have given us from the archives, plans, and the photographic section without this help
and assistance the project for this delightful, and well known craft would not have been possible.
