"Des maquettes de voiliers pas comme les autres."

Hi! My name is François Couture and I am a scale model builder.
More specifically, I am specialized in sailing boat models.
I am also the President of Les Régates Celloises, a scale model builders association.

This site intends to show pictures of my latest works
as well as to provide with some technical insights.

Come and see some of my latest boat models.

A 1/14 scale model of the famous 1934 J Class challenger. The model is made out of cardboard and resins, and yet it sails very well! To my knowledge, it is a unique performance in the world of scale model building.
A 1/14 scale model of the polar boat originally built for Docteur Jean-Louis Etienne's expeditions. Drawings available.

My own design. A 1/10 scale sailing ship model with beautiful shapes, made out of cardboard. Design and material both unique in the world! Drawings available.
Turkish Caïk Ivory, gold powder, precious woods… a copy of a 19th century popular Turkish boat scale model. Drawings available.
Team New Zealand
Scale model of the 1995 America's Cup winner. Drawings available.
Sixième Sens
Scale model of the semi-finalist America's Cup 2000 French challenger.
