Scandinavians developed Viking ships; one of the best ships built in Europe between 700 AD to the late 1000s and in 1300 A.D. introduced the stern rudder. The Mediterranean shipbuilders developed full-rigged sailing ship models in 1450 A.D. From there to the early 1800s ships used were constructed mostly using the plank on frame method rudder control and full-rigged sails. Galleons model ships launched to sea in the 1500s and used to the 1800s. The most famous ship models were the packet and clipper ships. Packet ships appeared in the Atlantic Ocean in the early 1800s followed by the Clipper ships during the 1840s. Both of these models were used as import ships.
Model ships contain miniature versions of their larger counterparts including libraries sitting rooms and movie theaters. These ships have a slower speed than most boats and their seaworthiness compared to ocean liners is lower. Overall compact a cruise model is very shapely when put on a pedestal or holder. A snowy white is the norm for these ship models and many have bottoms that are painted dark blue or some other vivid color. The colors accentuate any small detail carved into the cruise ship model. A cruise ship model either large or small is an excellent addition to any maritime themed home or office space.

Turn off the builders and watch the niche market we occupy get even smaller my friends. The reason DISTRIBUTORS exist is to represent and consolidate numerous manufacturers products under one roof providing an inventory warranty and technical support system often in a different country or continent than the manufacturer. This addition to the supply chain should enable smaller retailers to improve their competitiveness. One frustration in this system with todays emphasis on internet sales is the distributor who competes with the retailers he is supposed to be supporting. This can lead to reduced supply increased prices and an unfair (to the consumer) marketplace. And while the global marketplace has allowed us all shorten the delivery cycle and to become more price conscious and price savvy it has also become a thorn in the side of the retailer particularly the small business person.
