Quality Ship Model Drydock
Presents Most Authentic Tall Ship Models
Our mission in launching Quality Model Drydock is to provide a source for high quality, individual works of nautical art to meet the demands of D consumers.
These are ship models are not expensive kits that somehow never get finished, they are professionally-built, top museum quality model wooden ships...ships worthy of any mantel or boardroom.
Each is individually constructed with 'plank on frame or bulkhead' techniques by skilled artisans using only the finest exotic hardwoods. All details, including brass and bronze fittings and rigging, were selected under strict quality guidelines based on extensive research, original plans or documented visits to ensure the accuracy of every detail.
Depending on the size and level of complexity, it is not uncommon for construction to require thousands of hours of painstaking effort.
Each model is critically examined and awarded one of three quality designations depending on the builder, awards won by the model and its size.
Each model is an original and unique work of art that will become a family heirloom, that appreciates in value while providing a lifetime of enjoyment.
Our 'Blue Ribbon' models are very impressive for most homes or offices. The 'Gold Ribbons' go to models offering more decking and rigging detail. 'Platinum' Ribbons are reserved for ship models which offer museum curators and private collectors the highest level of carvings and finish.
First up, the ever popular HMS Victory.
The real Victory stands as the world's oldest commissioned warship. She is still manned by a compliment of officers and ordinary seamen of the Royal Navy and has seen over 220 years of near continuous naval service.
Her most recognized role was as the flagship of Admiral Horatio Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar. Currently she has dual service as flagship of the Commander-in-Chief, Naval Home Command and as a living museum.
She was launched in 1765 and commissioned in 1778. She is currently anchored in Portsmouth Harbor on the south coast of England.
