There's no doubt that when it comes to wood model kits, the sailing ships are the most common known to most people, even if they're not a modeler.

Of course when they see the model, it's often been finished, and they don't see the endless hours of assembling the kit plank by plank, rigging line by rigging line.

That's why finished kits can run into the thousands of dollars when sold for display.

These are probably some of the most complicated wood kits available. However, they're known for their fine detail. The kind of details that take a long time to see when looking at the model. The more you look, the more incredible the details pop out at you.

These are not just models, they are slices of past history.


These are traditional wood sailing ship models. These kits are more often museum grade, with hundreds of parts. But make fantastic models when completed to display. They use wood, cloth, string (thread), brass, and other materials to build fantastic ship models.
