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.
Wooden Ship Models are quickly becoming an obsession of mine I must admit! They make a phenomenal center piece for any room but if you are going to put it on display you want it to be high quality. There are a lot of things that you want to look for when you are in the market for a Wooden Ship Model whether they are tall ship models or a scale Titanic model there are some staples that you should look for. The Construction The construction of your model should be done by master craftsmen and should be considered \"museum quality.\" For a normal model of this caliber you want to look for at least a hundred hours of labor time during construction. The preferable design is what is called plank on frame construction. This is the same technique that was used to build real wooden ships and it gives them a very authentic look.
In the 1700s engineers started to develop and experiment with steam powered boats. By the 1800s the model paddle wheel steam boats were invented. By 1853 the propeller powered steam boat model was invented proving to be more efficient then the paddle wheel model. This dawned a new era of ship building; steel ships that replaced the traditional wooden model. Some of the most fascinating ships that are still in operation today were when the passenger cruise ships came on the seen. This RMS Titanic cruise ship was built in March 1909. In May 1911 this new steel model ship was launched which was a heavily publicized spectacle. Unfortunately at 11:40 pm on the 14th April 1912 the greatest maritime disaster in history began. Other models include the Normandie Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain.
These model ships are then tested in tanks to provide precise information on how the hull of the full sized ship will perform at sea and how it will perform at various speeds and various ocean behaviors. All of your major ship builders use this \"model ship\" method before they decide on the final design. To this day ship designers continue to build models for their desired ship structure.The History of model ship building goes way back to ancient Egypt around 3200 B.C. where they invented the earliest form of plank and frame as well as sails for their ships. The Greek Ships models followed approximately 500 years later with a two masts sail boat.
