Dwight Brooks- A Giant of a Modeler

20151227_131018a

Dwight Brooks built large scale model boats in the 1980s and 90s. His work is familiar to readers of the old Scale Ship Modeler magazine, where a number of his models appeared. See the links (at the right hand side here) for some of his SSM articles.

Dwight passed too soon in 1996, but his boats can still be seen in the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, where all 32 were donated.

  1. Beautiful ships—not models but ships!….I have not seen anything even close in Europe and I admit I’m a admirer of German engineering in most fields. Dwight Brooks was a few light years ahead of the rest. Pat thank a lot for the education!

  2. Great website to begin to learn about model ships!
