"You could say I have always had a fascination for the MSOD and after helping build some of the 'big ones' I thought I would keep my hand in by producing a scaled-down version in my own tiny workshop," said Peter.
Ray Beer, secretary of the MSOD Club said: "It is a superb piece of work and as it is a special year for the club I thought it would be nice for MSOD owners and anybody interested in sailing to have a chance of taking a close look at Peter's amazing work."

L The last MSOD
was built in 1952 and HMS Conway recognised them as ideal training boats for youngsters.
Then three years ago keen yachtsman Mike Wilson, 52, of Cae Mair, Beaumaris, who had been crewing for other members of the small band of Menai Strait One Design (MSOD) owners, was persuaded to take the plunge and buy Britannia.
MSOD secretary Ray Beer said: ``Britannia's last owner had virtually retired from sailing about 15 years ago.
David Gallichan, MSOD commodore, said: ``The family atmosphere surrounding the MSs - they used to be known as Marks and Spencers - is second to nothing.
This has lead us to another year of record revenues and income,” said John C Goodman, MSOD
