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:
technique. And instead of using balsa
wood that is as soft as paper, we use hard, "real"
wood such as teak, ebony, Jupiter...
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
is a reflection of the real exotic wood, not vinyl
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.
