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.
An Admiralty style model could also be a cross section of the hull. This is where all the planking is in place however the model would only represent part of the ship such as the bow mid section or stern. The advantage of building an Admiralty ship model to the ship model builder is that you can add detail to better represent the purpose and era of the ship. Using the Bounty as an example representation can be made for the galley armament room carpentry shop hold captains quarters etc. The Bountys botanical mission was to pick up bread fruit plants so some plants can be added as well as an area that would have been used for the studying of plants and animals discovered along its journey. Prior to starting the ship model the builder should not only study the ship that is being represented but also the era in which the ship was built. Ship building changed from century to century.
As we have continued to move inventories out of bricks and mortar buildings and into the cloud retailers have seen stock levels in North America fall to much lower levels. Cost concerns have led manufacturers to source manufacturing in countries with lower wage levels fewer health benefits and longer working hours. Unfortunately these moves have also provided barriers to effective and efficient information concerning product availability and longer delivery times in some cases. In order to address product availability longer lead times higher shipping costs and extremely price conscious retailers (as an extension of their customers) distributors have been taking steps to improve their ability to provide cost effective products. Sometimes in a smaller marketplace (like Canada) this can mean a limited supply of product in the warehouse a longer ordering cycle and longer shipping times in order to take advantage of lower cost transportation systems. And we retailers arent all saints either.
The fair winds blow strong across the steely blue waters of the open ocean. With such a favorable wind the water makes for smooth sailing. On the ocean a large gray ship is trawling ever closer. The ship itself moves quite quickly and with great velocity. The impressive bulk of the ship is what people first notice. The ship has a large central tower and a wide deck. The vessels tallest spire is extreme in both height and thinness. These ships in particular are built to remain in use on the ocean for great lengths of time. Having little to show in the way of damage on this ship the wear of constant sea journeys is extreme and it takes its toll on most other vessels.
