Is anyone aware of a model supplier that sells realistic model trawl winches & pot/net haulers of a scale of about 1/16.

Scoonie's in Kirkcaldy have a few bigger winch's Martin but you'd need to talk to them direct to see if anything they have is suitable.

They list once as close to 10cm wide if thats any help.

These are best made to suit the boat .
Easily made using plasticard and plastic tubing.

Circular flanges are made by cutting plasticard with a pair of dividers

Barrels and brakes are made by appropriate diameter plastic tubes

Frames are made of plasticard and plastic angle or I section

Hydraulic motors are made of plastic tube with smaller tube for the individual vanes
Hydraulic piping is of various diameters of solder.

Warping barrels are made from plastic tube (maybe 2-3 telescoped inside each other) grooved by a round file in a handraulic lathe.
I will see if I have parts made which I can photograph and send on.

Rope Reels are made of copper wire on a wooden spoke template

Hydraulic cranes/power blocks are fabricated from plasticard,tube and section.

A winch made like above will be both exact for your boat and only cost 1 for the bits.

Plastic section available from EMA model supplies, sales@ema-models.com
