Thanks to our master model makers, some with over 20 years in the business, we skillfully create display models that capture every detail of each vessel. We offer our customers true museum quality replica models you will be proud to display for generations. Each full hull model ship comes fully assembled with a solid hull (hand-carved from kiln-dried mahogany). Other parts are made from a variety of woods, putty, resins and metals. Each full hull ship model is mounted on pedestals and a polished mahogany display base and includes a nameplate. We engage our customers at each stage of the model build. 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.
