We manufacture models in any length and to any scale you desire.
Single model or small series?
If you are interested in commissioning a model ship in a small series,
we would be happy to provide you with an individual quotation. We are
able to offer a considerably reduced item price in comparison to the prices
given in the above price list.
Which documents do you require?
We are able to work with photographs, drawings, plans and 3D / CAD data.
At the very minimum we require photos of the ship you wish to commission
us to model.
How long are your delivery times?
Our normal delivery time is approximately 3 months. However delivery times
depend on the complexity of the model, the number of models commissioned
in the case of a small series and the current workload in our workshop.
We are happy to provide you with a more precise delivery time upon request.
Can I track the progress of my model while it is being built?
All our model ships are constructed in our workshop
on Mauritius. However you can see how the construction of your
model ship is progressing long before it is delivered to you. We regularly
send our customers images of the current state of construction throughout
the entire production process, so they are involved in all phases of their
model ship's creation. This also makes it possible to make alterations
during the production process, if desired.
Which materials do you use?
In the case of modern sailing and motor yachts, the ship's hull is moulded
from fibreglass. In the case of historical ships, we craft the hull from
wood following a frame construction technique. Many other materials also
come into play depending on the type of ship.
You are most welcome to contact us
directly if you have any questions or require further information about
our custom-built model ships.
