   CRUISE SHIPS and OCEAN LINERS

Welcome to the world of the ocean liners!  At ModelShipMaster, we have the honor to produce models of some of the greatest ocean liners ever built.   From the magnificent Cunarders, to the fabulous French liners, the sleek Italian liners, the fast German, and the great American ships.

There is absolutely nowhere else in the world that you can buy a large, well made and accurate model of these great ocean liners for such wonderful prices!  Note that our ocean liner models are built with plank-on-frame method (wood stripes nailed and glued to a skeleton frame) and NOT carved by machines from a solid piece of low value balsa wood.  Their superstructures are not solid wooden blocks.  Windows are cut thru, not dark decals.  

Instead of investing in machines, we put our efforts into the skills of the artisans.  Our models are made mostly with traditional  wood making method.   When you hold our models, evidence of hand crafting is every where.   They can only increase in value overtime compared to the ones who made primarily with molds/machines.   Our prices might be lower than other builders' products, but the main reason for our existence is to make pieces of nautical art, not profit.   The tremendous number of ship models that we have in stock tells all.

"...QM2 is MSM at its very best. You can't get any better than this model. It's flawless in execution, the centerpiece for anybody who has a passion for the great ocean liners of the past and present. Which is to say that it is a masterpiece. I have been a client since a year after MSM started selling models on the Internet, and over those years MSM exhibited a commitment to increasing both quality and accuracy.  Well Done!  I am now retiring from collecting. QM2 is my last model. Can't think of a better way to end it. Regards Sebastian"

"I have tried many times to call you.  I wanted to tell you personally how much I appreciate my Norwegian Epic!  It completely beat any expectation I might of had. You have my most sincere thanks and appreciation.  You will hear from me shortly as I need to order a display case.  Very best regards, Matthew L."

"My darling (and I do mean that seriously ) wife loves the 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."

"Hello my name is J M. I'm seeking employment with your company.  I've worked as a model maker for M...B... Inc in Chicago, Illinois for several years.  Unfortunately the owner is not very ambitious in growing his business and has lost so many clients in the last year that there is now virtually no work available. I would like the opportunity to work for your company due to high level of quality of standards you possess. I've included pictures of my model I'm currently building. It is plank on frame construction... Model building is my passion, naval and ocean liner models are of particular interest to me.  Thank you for all and any consideration J M.   P.S. I recently gave the owner of xxx.com an ear full for his trying to pass off Titanic and Aquitania models (very poor ones at that) as Britannic, Olympic and Lusitania and Mauritania with only the painted names and plaques changed. I can attach the conversation in full in the future. I'm sure someone here would find it entertaining. He bills ALL of his models as authentic and "museum quality."

SS Norway


 


The SS Norway is one of the most famous cruise ships afloat.   Her cabin system was very unique: Different cabins reflected the fashion of the 60's, 70's, 80's or the 90's! For example, your cabin might have contemporary decorations and a picture window, while some in the same class will only have a porthole and not reflect the current fashion in decor.

SS 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.

Her innovative design set new standards for ocean travel.  Oceanic was the first ship to exceed the legendary Great Eastern in length and was the largest ship in the world until 1901.  At 17,272 gross tons, she cost one million pounds sterling, and even with the use of the most modern labor saving devices still required 1,500 shipwrights to complete. "Nothing but the very finest", was Ismay’s policy toward this new venture.  At a comfortable speed of 12 knots, the Oceanic was capable of circumnavigating the globe without refueling, accommodating over 2,000 passengers and 349 crew.  She was launched in January 1899 and made her maiden voyage from Liverpool to New York on September 6th.

Royal Viking Star


 


The first vessel of Royal Viking Line which incorporated new ideas into the construction. After studying some 40 liners and cruise ships then in service, the lines owners were most impressed with Oceanic and Queen Elizabeth 2. Of the two it is clearly the Cunard ship which has had the greater influence on this ship.  At approximately one-third the tonnage and passenger capacity of QE2, the whole scheme is rendered on a proportionately smaller and thus more intimate scale.

RMS Britannia

 


Britannia was the first purpose-built transatlantic mail and passenger steamer.  She was built for Samuel Cunard's British and North American Royal Mail Steam Packet Company, later known as the Cunard Line.  She made her maiden voyage from Liverpool to Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Boston, USA, in July 1840.  Britannia benefited from the fact that it was not directly competing with the larger and faster 'Great Western' on the New York route. In 1849 'Britannia' was sold to become the flagship of the Navy of the North German Confederation, which renamed her 'Barbarossa'. She later saw service in the Prussian Navy and the Imperial German Navy, before eventually being broken up at Kiel in about 1880.

SS Oceanic 1871

 


Oceanic was the pioneer and 'name ship' of the White Star Line.  She is generally considered to have been the forerunner of the modern luxury liner, making all previous North Atlantic liners obsolete. The usual narrow deckhouses and high, solid bulwarks were replaced by an iron promenade deck with open railings. Even more revolutionary was the fact that the first class dining saloon and cabins were transferred from their old-established positions aft to amidships. Here there was less movement and less vibration from the propeller. Cabins and portholes were much larger than usual. The overall effect was a light and airy appearance, new to steamship accommodation. Oceanic sailed on her maiden voyage from Liverpool to New York on 2 March 1871. Her avant-garde appearance created a sensation in both ports.

Paddle Steamer Sirius
 


Sirius was the first ship ever to cross the Atlantic under continuous steam power.  In April 1938, the 700-ton Sirius sailed the Atlantic with 40 passengers on board.  She arrive at Sandy Rock, New Jersey, after the voyage of just over 18 days.  Detained by a storm at sea that consumed her entire store of coal, the crew had to break up some of the ship's internal fittings and furniture for fuel.  The Sirius's achievement marked the beginning of regular transatlantic steamship service, heralding the era of the ocean liner.   Please click to commission this model.


 


Some noteworthy successes:

- In March 2009, after inspecting in person two ocean liner models and taking pictures for Cunard experts to review, Queen Victoria cruise ship agreed to buy both of our models to display on the ship. 

- In April 2008, Model Ship Master supplied Merritt Productions a 6-foot ocean liner model. Some of Merritt Productions' 30 film credits include: Batman Forever, Total Recall, Speed, and The Peacemaker.  This model is used in a Royal Caribbean's commercial. 

- The world’s largest premium cruise line Oceania Cruises chose Model Ship Master to repair two massive over 10' long ocean liner models in September, 2007.  Happy with the repair,  Oceania Cruises invited Model Ship Master to repair again in September, 2008.

-"Received the Normandie well on schedule. The model arrived in very good condition due to the way it was packed. It is an excellent copy of the ship itself. I have checked other makers on the internet and could only find one that met your standards, but at a very much higher cost. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and my dealing with your company.  John Earl Coleman "
