  2. How are your models constructed?
    A majority of our models are built using the plank-on-frame or plank-on-bulkhead construction method. This is a painstaking process, taking hundreds of hours, in which each individual plank is added to the hull one at a time. Our models are not constructed from pre-made, pre-measured, mass-marketed, mass-produced model kits.
  3. What woods do you use to build the models?
    We use only the highest-quality woods available such as cherry, birch, maple, blackwood, white lotus, walnut, rosewood, teak, yellow siris, light ebony and others.
  4. Which is your best model ship?
    This is a very difficult question. It varies based on your budget and the type of ship you are looking for. Our most popular ships are the HMS Bounty and the USS Constitution, primarily due to how they look and their historical significance. If you have a question about which ship is right for you, or as a gift, please contact us.
  5. In the model description, it shows the scale such as the HMS Bounty 1:50 scale. What does this mean?
    The scale is a ratio of how large or how small the ship model is relative to the real ship. The real HMS Bounty is 50 times larger than our model, hence the 1:50 scale.
