Uncompromised Detail • Competitive Cost
Model ships have been popular for centuries. Early examples include Phoenician ships, as well as Greek and Egyptian vessels, large and small – even dating as far back as Tutankhamun. At Maritime Replicas, we aim to produce the world’s finest custom model ships nationwide, in every possible category.
Maritime Replicas was established over 25 years ago, and we have achieved a reach of over 70 countries. We can build anywhere from one to 1,000 handcrafted model ships of any scale. We also have skilled craftsmen available to build ships measuring anywhere from six inches to 20 feet.
At Maritime Replicas, we build our model ships with two materials. With the use and marriage of these two unit materials, we eliminate the possibility of cracking, a problem found among many traditional wood models.
The hull is cast in superior fiberglass for strength and superb accuracy, including weld line inputs, discharge ports, and countless other subtle parts found on the actual ship. Meanwhile, fine-scale brass is used for the superstructure of our model ships. With turned brass for masts and booms, as well as small parts composed with brass moldings, we aim to build the highest-quality fine-scale, handcrafted ship models. Invariably classified as heirlooms, our clients have advised us that model ships from Maritime Replicas are of the best quality and craftsmanship that they have yet to find.
We only employ the most talented and dedicated modelers and craftsmen or craftswomen. Our team creates the most meticulous ship replicas, and all models are 100% individually handcrafted.
The happiness that we can create is borne out with endless thankful messages that we receive from our clients – both individual and corporate.
“The model arrived and it is breathtaking, Michael. It is here in my office and people are mesmerized by it. Please pass my sincerest compliments along to the builder. I might want him to make me another model. Seriously. At any rate, thanks for making this happen. It’s been quite a journey with an amazing result.”
At Maritime Replicas, we relate our standards to the Ship Model Classification Guidelines of the Mystic Seaport Museum Stores in Mystic, Connecticut, as well as the American Marine Model Gallery and its administrator, Michael Wall.
You can find our museum-quality ship models in several prestigious locations, including The White House, The Mariners’ Museum, The Australian National Maritime Museum, The Australian War Memorial, and The Pentagon, as well as high-profile shipping companies, cruise lines, yachting clubs, and in the collections of countless fastidious collectors worldwide.
