Combining the Traditional and the Modern

The David Fawcett workshop is a showcase of both traditional techniques and the latest skills needed to build models that are not only of the highest quality, but which also meet the standards required by such a highly discerning market.

Indeed, traditional skills such as shaping a hull from a set of line drawings or turning a winch on a lathe are still very much a part of David Fawcett's DNA. Committed to providing the very best service, we also work with the very latest technologies, including 3D CAD software and CNC machines, 3D printing machines and computer-generated photo etching.

Our workshop is where we produce all of our models; our styling models to aid the design and development process, our exhibition models that are the finest replicas boasting the most intricate detail and the highest quality finish and our short-run productions of detailed models that include all the details and qualities of a one-off model.

Quality of Finish

Achieving a level and quality of finish that is both faultless and to scale is vital when producing a first-class model. This not only involves an excellent paint finish, but also finer details such as decking, railings and furniture. Achieving the correct finish requires a combination of the latest equipment and years of experience, both of which we possess at David Fawcett.

Quality Control

Quality control is of paramount importance at David Fawcett.

All of our work is carried out within our workshop and all members of the team are involved with each model we create; in the David Fawcett workshop, quality control is a team responsibility and plays an integral role in helping us maintain the very high standards for which we are known.


Innovation is key to everything we do. We are constantly looking at new ways to innovate in order to meet the changing needs of a fast-moving industry. One recent example has been the incorporation of opening doors and lighting to give interior views.
