On the very edge where the horizon meets the sky, a storm is slowly forming, turning the waters of the ocean a dark gray. Dark clouds threaten to erupt with great deluges of rain. In a desperate bid to outmaneuver the storm, a single ship sails ever faster. Unlike other ships, the flag of this vessel is a pitch black color. With a bright white hue, the jolly roger is emblemized on the flag itself with a large, toothy smile. This flag confirms that the small ship is in fact a pirate ship. Carrying huge amounts of cargo, while still maintaining optimal speed, is not a problem for these ships. In many ways, the pirate ship represents the adventure one can have on the high seas as well as the danger and the intrigue that is ever-present.
Some readers of this article may find it too provocative but it needs to be said. After spending 30 years building ship models, and twelve years selling radio controlled and wooden ship models to the hobby enthusiast, I find there are some frustrations that never go away in the ship model building industry. Lets face it; the business of ship model building, operates as a niche industry. Nonetheless, radio controlled and wooden ship models are, to the hobby enthusiast, a very important past time. Rich in history, technical challenges, and a form of art and legacy; ship modeling is a very rewarding hobby.
These metal shells protect these pieces from any harm. Because there are so many different US Coast Guard ship models, a model can be found for most every preference. Whether youre entirely new to ship buying or a great veteran, these pieces are time honored installments in anyones collection. If youre searching for the perfect gift for a child, consider these items. No one is too young or old to enjoy these pieces. Many of these items are used for display. Though it doesnt matter which rooms they are put in, placing these ships in a living room or office are good ways to start. Since the most important thing is to make sure the ship model is seen by all, keep it in an area where people often flock to or pass through. Polishing your model ship if it is made from metal is a must.
Ships of olden times were almost always longer than they were taller. This design choice was augmented by the fact many people of ancient times who built ships simply did not have the technology to make them tall. Instead of height, ship builders when for width and length. Daunting heights were soon explored as European ship builders discovered the technology that allowed them to build the ships taller. Tall masts were a trademark of ship building of this time. Like a tiered cake, builders could build the stern of the ships higher. Today, wood tall ship models copy this same antiquated design. The tiered layer of the ship was very popular among builders. Due to the streamlined shape, the ship could both carry more weight and move faster through the water. The sleeping quarters for the officers and the helm were both place in this terraced portion of the ship.
