Welcome to the website for Linkspan Models, a UK-based manufacturer and retailer of classic and modern ferry kits.

Based in Worcestershire, Carl and Florence Tunnicliffe have long held a passion for the romance of ferry travel; from the classic days of the steam turbine driven train ferries and pioneering car ferries of the 1960s and 70s to the modern day ‘super-ferries’ competing with the budget airlines and the channel tunnel.

Having wanted to build and sail models of the ferries of their childhood memories, and having searched high and low for suitable kits, they realised that none existed.

To address this shortcoming, Linkspan Models was born – and now everyone can re-live the classic days of ferry travel - in miniature!

All our kits are built to an exacting 1/96th scale and are suitable for both static display and radio control.

Within these pages you can discover more about our current and future range of kits, how they are designed and built, alongside galleries and reviews of completed models.


In addition, you can read a little bit more of the history about the prototype ships, discover where you can meet us and at which events we will be exhibiting.

Please feel free to contact us with any of your comments or requests for orders.
