LARGE SHIP MODELS

Thank you for your visit.  While viewing these large ship models, please keep in mind that they are not very heavy, thanks to our superior hollow hull construction method.  Some of them have photos of a 5'3" woman holding them.  A little difficult for her but not at all for an average man who can carry one upstairs.  These models' hulls, if carved from a piece of timber like many manufacturers do, would weigh over 100 lbs and need not two but three, four people to handle.   Those low-end models are cheap and never offered by ModelShipMaster.


USS Pennsylvania ACR-4


 


On January 18, 1911, Eugene Ely landed his Curtiss plane on a platform constructed on USS Pennsylvania's afterdeck anchored in San Francisco Bay using the first tailhook system.  This was the first successful aircraft landing on a ship, and the first using a tailhook apparatus, thus opening the era of naval aviation and aircraft carriers.

The Benetti Classic 115 has become one of the most sought after models in the 35m range of superyachts, and has been crowned by her builder as the jewel of the fleet.
Part of the success of the Benetti Classic 115 series comes from the large amount of deck space.  The main tender is stored in a cleverly designed stern garage, leaving the aft decks free for use.

On her maiden voyage, she captured the blue riband and broke the Atlantic speed record thus winning the Hale's Trophy from the Italian's Rex.

Michelangelo


Michelangelo was distinguished by two unusual features: her graceful hull and unique funnels. Research aimed at ensuring smoke and grit fell clear of the decks led to this peculiar funnel shape. Narrow funnels with lids were found to be most effective whilst the surrounding trestlework gave the shape of conventional funnels.
