At Maritime Replicas, we build our handcrafted models with two materials. With the use and marriage of these two unit materials, we eliminate the possibility of cracking, a problem found among many traditional wood models.
The hull is cast in superior fiberglass for strength and superb accuracy, including weld line inputs, discharge ports, and countless other subtle parts found on the actual ship. Meanwhile, fine-scale brass is used for the superstructure of our model ships. With turned brass for masts and booms, as well as small parts created with brass moldings, we aim to build the highest-quality fine-scale custom ship models. Invariably classified as heirlooms, our clients have advised us that model ships from Maritime Replicas are of the best quality and craftsmanship that they have yet to find.
We only employ the most talented and dedicated modelers and craftsmen or craftswomen. Our team creates the most meticulous ship replicas, and all models are 100% individually handcrafted.
The happiness that we can create is borne out with endless thankful messages that we receive from our clients - both individual and corporate.
