Now, lets suppose you do manage to get someone at the hobby shop on the phone. Who are you speaking with? Could it be a ship model builder, a long term full-time employee who understands the ship model hobby world, a small business owner, a part-time student? Most likely you will be speaking to a part-time employee or a small business owner and while owners and employees have a vested interest in your business, they dont always have the experience to address your concerns or the ability to provide personalized ship model and parts and fittings searching services. Sometimes they cant even get replacement parts from the manufacturers for you (see the information about manufacturers and distributors above)! The hobby market has changed in recent years and most hobby businesses are catering to the general consumer. In other words, their focus is elsewhere and its because sales of ship model kits, fittings, parts, and accessories are a very small part of their overall business.
Modern-day sea-faring received much instruction from these carefully preserved, 5,000- year-old models. Specimens of these boats found a place in the British Museum, the Louvre, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and many other museums worldwide. Modern-day ship models came into existence before or during the construction of many eighteenth- and nineteenth-century warships. These were known as Admiralty or Shipyard models. Many of these models did not show the timbering they would have in the actual vessel, but the models illustrated the form of the hull and details of the deck furnishings, masts, spars, and general frame. The models provided the non-sea-faring financiers with a birds-eye view of the vessel that was to come into being.
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.
