Knox class frigates were originally laid down as destroyer escorts, but all were redesignated as frigates in June 1975 and their hull designation changed from DE to FF, but retained the original hull number. A sub-class of the Knox class was built, commonly referred to as the Hewes class. The 46 ships of the Knox class were the largest, last and most numerous of the US Navy’s second-generation Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) escorts. The lead ship of the class was the USS Knox (FF-1052), laid down 5 October 1965 and commissioned 12 April 1969. Knox class variations include: 1) In the 1970s five modified ships were built in Spain for the Spanish Navy and are known as Baleares class; and 2) In the 1990s the US agreed to transfer 8 Knox class frigates to the Republic of China Navy these frigates are known as the Chi Yang class.   Any service era or vessel configuration - We can build a model of them all - your pick.

We offer our Knox Class Frigate Models (DE and FF) in several popular size/scale offerings for easy ordering and selection.  However, if you would like your model made in a size other than those sizes listed, please contact us with your request. Custom orders are our specialty!

Our Frigate models are made-to-order, meaning that we do not stock any pre-made models.  Only when a customer tells us the size and/or scale desired do we build the model. Each model is exquisitely crafted by our master model builders and comes fully assembled with a solid hull - hand carved from kiln-dried mahogany.  Other parts are made from a variety of woods, putty, resin and metals. Every model includes  pedestals, a polished mahogany base board, and a name plate.  Options include keel block mounting, waterline models, ships seals and ribbons, and weathering paint schemes.

The model build time is generally 20 weeks from receipt of the order and deposit. The normal procedure is a 50% deposit with the commissioning, with the balance due prior to shipping.  Note that prior to shipping, we take a series of photos of the model and send them to you for final review and approval – so you know exactly what your model will look like and allow for any necessary modifications. Once you have approved your model, we’ll collect the final balance and she will be shipped in a robust shipping crate and insured for your protection.

FREE SHIPPING in the USA - Note that our model prices include shipping and insurance within the USA.

Shipping costs outside the USA will depend on the model size ordered and shipping destination. You will be responsible for any applicable taxes or duties, based on the commercial invoice value for the model.
