Welcome to the Scale Section of the DRBC.

This section has many different types of scale models ranging from passenger liners, modern salvage and harbour tugs, numerous naval vessels including a submarine and aircraft carrier, a bulk tanker, fishing trawlers even a solar powdered vessel!
The Waddy Sailboat are also popular at the club
The modelers are active every Wednesday & Sunday morning from 08h30 and are always keen to show off their models as they put them through theirs paces on the water.
