Often times, its the bottom line that has to register the most strongly with a manufacturing company. Put in stronger terms, the reason is to increase the profit margins also known as we need to \"make more money\"! Dont get me wrong; to stay in business all manufacturers have to make a fair profit. Most manufacturers of ship models provide a good quality product for a reasonable price. They do need to place a little more consideration on the needs of builders. This would certainly help in growing the hobby and their market share. Another frustration for builders is manufacturers that are still providing only die-cut parts in their ship model kits. Die-cut parts have a tendency to become less accurate with the greater number of parts produced and they are frequently difficult to work with.
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.
\"A ship sailing is the most beautiful thing that man has made.\" Anyone who has ever seen a tall ship cutting the waves will agree. As impressive as the sight of such a ship at sea can be, many people are fascinated by historic ship models, too. Since ancient times ships have not only been used for transport, but were also a means of demonstration of power and domination. Even the Egyptian pharaohs designed their vessels very beautifully. Fine ship models of that time were found as burial objects in pharaos graves in pyramids. They are displayed today in museums like the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. In the Mediterranean ships at that time were use by all peoples to travel, transport and warfare.
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.
