Clark MK IX Spitfire


Hello there John,

A modeller friend called round tonight for a chat. He’s building a one fifth T-28 Trojan and couldn’t find large enough retracts, so I suggested we look on your website,  which was when I discovered you have delivered your last Spitfire.

This is sad news for those modellers who didn’t have the opportunity to purchase one of your exquisite kit sets when they were available but I’d like you to know that my Mark IX is still alive and very airworthy after many years. So thank you for the pleasure you’ve given so many of us over many years, both in the building as well as the flying, and I sincerely hope your retirement is a happy and long one!

There’s only one thing better than a Clark Spitfire and that’s a full size one. But just think of the cost!!!!

Sincerest best regards John Clark, you really are a legend.

Clark Tiger Moth by Carl Cimprich


Hello John,

My name is Carl Cimprich.  I have owned a Clark Tiger Moth for more years than I care to admit.  I’m currently putting her through her third refit.  I’ve come to your shop 3 different times to buy parts including replacement cowl, interior and even a new wing kit once.  No one will ever part me from my Clark Moth.

All these years I’ve looked forward to a time when I could treat myself to my own Clark Spitfire.  I just visited your website and read the news that it is no longer available. Although very disappointed that I will never have a Clark Spitfire in my retirement, I am well grateful I’ve had my Moth all these years along with the support available from you.

Please if someone has purchased your tooling and will be offering the spit can you tell me?  Or… if that tooling is available for purchase? (probably dreaming here)

Thanks for the good times.


Carl Cimprich

Gypsy Moth


Good Day John,

You might recall me buying a Granby style propellor from you about 6 years ago for my Gipsy 1c powered Moth.  It has been running well for me for about a year and a half flying so far.  For your amusement I enclose a few short clips taken by my friends with phone cameras.

Dear Mr Clark,

I am so pleased with my Lancaster Rifle you made with the African Sepele wood. It fits me perfectly and is very accurate. I will enjoy many hours shooting this beautiful creation. Thank you for your efforts in also supplying the hunting bag, horns and patch knife, etc.

Lancaster Flintlock Rifle by Henri Laliberté


Dear John,

I would like to take a few moments to thank you for your help during that “winter project.”  It was a dream I had since 40 years to build a musket but I never thought I would have the chance to build so nice a model like that Lancaster and be able to have a mentor like you!!

It was not a beginner’s project but with your generous help I was able to carry out my goal.

Again many many thanks,

Henri Laliberté

Dear John,

I just received the wonderful bullet starter and I am extremely proud to own a piece of art handmade by yourself.

Next week I will go back to the range and enjoy my Lancaster and thanks to you I will upgrade my muzzle loading efficiency.

I am very happy and thankful for everything you did to ensure my success.

Have a nice weekend,

Henri Laliberté


Tigermoth by Etienne Bekker of Dubai, UAE


Dear John,

It’s been 9 months ….yes …..that is the time it takes to deliver!!

Finally, finished the lovely DH82A kit that you supplied. It’s been a journey, yet a lovely final scale product of my full scale 1942 aircraft. I’ve included some pics of the model and finally the real machine!

Thought you may appreciate some pics from the before, during and after of the building process. Unfortunately some stages completely missed out, but enough to encourage the enthusiast in approaching a project like this. It was a great project, hard and long hours spent with a lot of enjoyment.

Greetings from Dubai, UAE.
