gradient divider

Model shipbuilding is a relaxing, quiet hobby that results in a beautiful model that will draw admiration from all who see your impressive creation.

Model ship and boat model building is a rewarding and creative hobby. Whether you’re building a ship or boat model for the first time or you’re an experienced modeler, you can shop for a wide variety of model kits that will bring you many hours of enjoyment. Even high quality model kits are priced so everyone can afford to participate. Some quality products directly from international wooden ship model kit and model boat kit manufactures to check out include Amati, Corel, Euromodel, Modellers Shipyard, Turk and Victory models.  Remember, if you buy from a specialist supplier, you will be able to choose from the most latest and most popular products on the market. Most model kits come with all timbers, fittings, plans and instructions to complete the ship model.

Most ship modelers will tell you that they started out with simple models. With each creation they became increasingly more passionate about their hobby. As their passion grew, so too, did the complexity of model design and style.
