This site is dedicated to the art of ship model building.

 
The site shows more than 4000 high resolution photographs of fine ship models of all ages. All are beautiful decorative pieces, many are museum quality. Most of them are wooden model sailing ships of the Great Age of Sail.

 
We give a short summary on the history of the original ships, a description of the ship models and many high resolution photos of the models, taken as views of the entire ship model and closer views of details. Those of you interested in model ship making will find an extensive literature list and links to sites about ship models, model boats, yacht models, and maritime and naval related sites. Have a look at our ship model gallery.
