We're very proud of our reputation in the field of model ship building, and our association with local ship yards and marine architects in Canada.   The Brinkworth's first connection with marine models started over 52 years ago in the UK.  The picture above was taken in the early 60's, showing me working on a model of the RMS Saxonia, for the Cunard Steam Ship Company in Great Britain.

The BC Ferry Corporation was our largest client for marine models in Canada.  We've built most of their models since the introduction of their first "Super Ferry", and our association continued for many years, as they added new vessels to their fleet.

Vito STEEL Boat & BARGE CONSTRUCTION, was a small shipyard that operated here in Richmond BC from 1965 until 1987.   We built two pretty high profile vessels for them not long before they closed shop.     Our first, was the "Bonavista Bay" a Husky Oil Anchor Handling Tug, in a scale of 1:100.    Later came the model of Canadian Coast Guard vessel "Samuel Risley".    Both models were built at the same time as the actual vessels were being built at Vito's shipyard.   We followed, and photographed their progress right up to their "sea trials", and completion.    We felt privileged to witness, first hand, the creation of these iconic pieces of Canadian history, and to be a small part of preserving it.
