Model, HMCS Bras d'Or
This model of the Canadian-designed and -built hydrofoil HMCS Bras d'Or was originally built to test the ship's design and performance.
Intended as a high-speed vessel for anti-submarine work, the Bras d'Or could operate like a conventional ship, with its hull floating in the water, or at speeds of up to 60 knots (110 kilometres per hour) travelling on its wing-like foils, with its hull completely out of the water. Testing of the full-sized craft began in 1968, but the program was cancelled in 1971 due to high costs and changing defence priorities.
