The Model Engineer Exhibition
Sandown Park, Esher, Surrey
9th – 11th December 2011
Visit and see the Lady Kristen which will be on show and is being auctioned to raise money for RNRMCF and ABF. Donated by Raymond Hunt.
Raymond Hunt is a artist based in Cornwall. The schooner Lady Kristin took more than four years to make and won a bronze medal at the World Engineering Model Exhibition at Royal Ascot in 2007, against a field of hundreds of entries from around the world. Raymond said: ‘since the 1980’s I have used my work to help those in need. We’ve all seen the footage of the coffins coming back from war, the widows laying flowers and the children left without their dad. It breaks your heart and you can’t help but want to do something for them.’
The model maker and artist spent four and a half years piecing together thousands of tiny pieces of wood to construct the Lady Kristen. She was built from scratch using mainly hardwood. The only pieces which were not hand-made were the rigging and paint and is named after his wife.
