ABOUT THE MODEL SHIPYARD

The art of model shipbuilding is as old as maritime history itself. For centuries, plans of proposed new vessels, submitted to the admiralty for approval, had to be accompanied by a fully detailed scale model. Many of these shipyard or builders models still survive today; centuries after the original ship sank or ran aground on some distant shore. These models are displayed in maritime museums around the world as reminders of days gone by of men of steel with their ships of wood.
