Maritime Replicas began with seeking to try and emulate the "legendary" British Model builder Bassette Lowke, who were so revered and respected for the highest of Standards and accuracy in the early years of the 20th century, but, alas they were no more!
The use of the scale BRASS is little known and used anywhere else!! WHY do we use BRASS??
• No other material can provide such accuracy and finest of detail!!
• Possible to "acid etch" all openings, gratings, ventilator grilles, in finest details - no decals!!! Resists the problems of other model materials of "differential movement" and deterioration.
• Longevity surpasses all other materials and thus "heirloom" models are unsurpassed!!
