I wish you all the best for the future , good luck and again many thanks, Kindest Regards, Frank"
 


 
 


SS NORMANDIE ocean liner model

"My Normandie ship model arrived today and it is stunning! Exquisite detail. Truly beautiful.  The shipping channels to and from New York begin about 50 miles offshore and to the south of where our house stands here on Nantucket Island... This great ship passed near here dozens of times before World War II brought her career to an end. It is wonderful to have this beautiful model in our home to celebrate that history.  Thank you for your excellent work, and as I previously indicated, we will be back to you in the future as we continue to decorate our home. Bill K."

 



 
 


SANTA MARIA tall ship

"I would have gotten back to you sooner but I've been on vacation. Nonetheless, I must tell you how pleased I am with the "Santa Maria" model. The pictures you sent, as impressive as they were, do not adequately convey the beauty and elegance of the model itself. I congratulate you and your staff for a job superbly done. If I decide to obtain another model ship  (a very real possibility) I will most certainly be getting back to you. Best regards, Paul"

 

 
 


TITANIC ocean liner scale model

"
Arlan Ettinger wanted me to write and tell you that yesterday at the Titanic  press conference, your custom made Titanic model was seen by news crews from all over the world and will be seen by 100s of millions of viewers world-wide.  Also, someone at the press conference pointed out to Arlan that there are several tiny flags missing from the model, and he asks that you send them to him please. Many thanks,  Carolyn Salter  Auction Coordinator. Guernsey's 108 East 73rd Street New York, NY  10021"
 

 
 


WANDERER whaler tall ship
"I just unpacked my Wanderer and it is beyond my highest hopes. You did a masterful job in recreating this historic whaler! It is the centerpiece of my "man cave" and I'm sure will become a family heirloom.   Almost equally amazing was the craftsmanship of the shipping crate. I have to admit, I was a bit worried about how such a large, detailed and delicate model would survive the transport but your custom fitted crate supported and protected it perfectly."
 

 


GREEK TRIREME ancient model ship

"I have had a lot of compliments on the trireme.  Please thank all those involved in its construction and assembly.  Not an easy ship model to make.   And the execution is perfect.   Again, thanks!  Judge Peter Caras, Peoria, Illinois."
 


 
 


VIKING boat model

"I wanted to let you know how much I like the Viking Ship Model I bought from you.  It is an absolute work of art!  I have seen the very best ship models that exist: the Smithsonian, Mystic Sea Port, San Diego, Los Angels and San Francisco Maritime Museums – and this one ranks right in there with them. Thank you!  - Jim Gasper."
 


 
 


PACIFIC PRINCESS cruise ship
"I have received the Pacific Princess model that you built for me, and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I commend all of you on the diligent way that you faithfully recreated this ship from scratch. Thank you for the many hours, days and weeks that you spent working on this model on my behalf. Your fine effort is very much appreciated!... I never had the chance to take a cruise on the Pacific Princess, but now I have my own "Pacific Princess" to admire for a lifetime.  Again, allow me to say "thank you!"  Best regards and God bless, Jeffery Seay  Editor in Chief, "Florida State Times" and "STATE Faculty-Staff Bulletin" The Florida State University." 

 


 
 


SAN CARLOS tall ship
"We are extremely pleased with the ship models; they are absolutely gorgeous and beautiful.  You have some very talented artisans working with you.  I am going to send some information about the WWII Japanese Destroyer IJN NENOHI.  This will go into an exhibit with the submarine the USS Triton sub your team is building now.  Wings Over Alaska Museum."
 


 
 


GUATAMALA merchant ship model
"Dear Frank: "Guatemala" finally arrived at home port.  Very nice, good attention to detail.  Satisfied with the model.  I will send you a photo of the final port of this ship when I get the display finished and installed in the museum. Viktor."
 

 


SS MANHATTAN commercial tanker model

"My name is Peter K. I work with McQuilling Partners, Inc., N.Y.. McQuilling is a tanker chartering brokerage company founded in 1972. We maintain strong ties with the U.S. and international maritime industries and McQuilling employs some 35 Kings Point, Fort Schuyler and other MM school graduates.  I recently contacted my good friends at American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and requested their assistance in providing me with “Manhattan”GA/Capacity/MSS plans. At that time they were kind enough to recommend that I contact your fine firm who they believed would likely have all that is required to build the model to hand..."  "...Thank you  so very much.  You will be hearing from my son Jason K. in the near future and I myself would like to do one more, finances permitting.  The model makes me happy each time I pass it – usually 5-6 times daily. Very best regards, Peter"
 


 

"My darling (and I do mean that seriously ) wife loves the ship models once she sees them, but she is much more practical than I am, at least in the short term, so she doesn't buy for the future...if there is no space for something now, she says "why buy it." 

I, however, am much more future oriented, and very aware of the fact that items of high quality but limited appeal to the general public may not be available in the future....books that aren't on the best seller list, classical music recordings, etc. There is always a niche market for high quality items, but it frequently becomes very expensive. Unfortunately, we live in a culture where it is nearly impossible to go broke making mediocre movies or producing annoying and cloned rap music, but quality, if not priced "competitively", frequently becomes extinct, in the mass market sense...try finding a a good quality toaster or other small appliance at any price.

I fully plan on unveiling all of the acquisitions when we have more space, I hope, in a few years, assuming I don't prematurely expire ( I am 63, but in much better shape than most my age... I should know, I'm a physician ). However, no one's future is assured.

Interestingly enough, my wife inquired today as to whether a friend of hers could bring her grandchildren over to see my ship models, as they seem to have a fascination for sailing ships (probably watched Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean too many times), so I would say that's a positive sign.

Anyway, as usual, I have probably communicated more than you wish to hear.  Keep the colors flying and thanks to all your artisans for their greatly appreciated efforts.

Scott B."
