    Try a larger photos with a few different angles.

    Also, what is the story of the model?

    Did you just find it on your door step?

    I'm not being sarcastic, but it really does
    seem quite similar to the USS Minno of Giligans island!

    could be... ?

    Looks like an Atkins design to me.

    It doesn't look like Atkins proportions at all to me. Neither Billy nor John would have put that much freeboard on her. If you look closely, you'll see a sheer line about half way up the topsides, which suggests this could be a modified model. The lower unbroken sheer has much more commonly seen proportions then the broken sheer above. I think the model is cartoonish in proportions currently, though it may once have been quite different, if the lower sheer is any indication. In fact, the lower sheer looks like it might have been a down east hull form at one time, possibly before the condo was installed above. No offense to Oltretrepunti, the model looks nicely done.

    Yes, I think you're correct PAR (actually, I'm still waiting to see something incorrect written by you... ;) ).
    I recall seing this Innaminnie design by Billy Atkin once: http://www.boat-links.com/Atkinco/Cruisers/Innaminnie.html
    and the memory of that drawing must have surfaced when I saw the model in the photo. But both the exterior styling and geometrical proportions are clearly very different.

    Both the Innaminnie and the Ditchburn are flat tops and this model has a short trunk cabin on the foredeck. To my eye, the profile would look much better if the trunk cabin was taller and the freeboard equally reduced as a result.

    Thanks Daiquiri, but I'm flawed, just as my other half or of course Paul B, who seems to think I know very little in this or related industries.

    Sometimes a model is just a model and I suspect this in one of those times. Can't imagine a full size boat in those proportions.

    Thank you all for the help they are giving me, the model was photographed for an advertisement for furniture. I contact the owner to ask if it is a model of fantasy ...

    Very very thanks

    Regards
