"We have been using the services of Allan Thompson &TCM since the 1990s.  First, to build scale tank test models for a number of America’s Cup based projects. Since then, they have manufactured a range of tank models, from racing yachts, motorboats to offshore structures to name but a few.  TCM use a range of model building techniques to manufacture light weight and accurate scale physical models which help us deliver high quality hydrodynamic and aerodynamic experimental services to our client base and therefore would not hesitate in recommending them."  -  Martyn Prince, Southampton University
