                      OUR DEDICATION TO TRADITIONAL WOOD WORKING ART

 

Model Ship Master crafts models, not manufacturing them.  For the ship hull alone, instead of using modern machinery to produce multiple of them in a short time, we use thin, narrow wooden stripes (or metal) to plank wooden frames just like how real ships’ hulls are built. An example of this technique can be viewed here: plank-on-frame technique.  And instead of using balsa wood that is as soft as paper, we use hard, "real" wood such as teak, ebony, Jupiter...

Many makers avoid the difficult plank-on-frame task and carve ship hulls out of a piece of solid wood.  The result is extremely heavy ships.  Many others make molds and manufacture multiple units at once and store them for future usage.  Models built like that are more like toys.  No passion, no artistry in it.

At Model Ship Master, we believes in the value of the materials that make up the product and thus never use machines or any modern techniques to hide the inferior materials beneath surface.  For example, the beautiful wood color of our classic motor boats like  this one is a reflection of the real exotic wood, not vinyl on plywood. 

One of our customers' expressed concisely: "Your products can be compared with real art paintings, while the others duplicated prints." 

Below are some examples that never happens at Model Ship Master.
