There are several types of construction of a wooden ship model. Some are carved from a single block of wood, others by gluing together blocks of wood, or by gluing together of slabs of wood into a laminated block. Others are built on what is called plank-on frame, built just as the full-size ship is constructed. Wooden models of all types of vessels--luxury cruise liners, war ships, sailing ships--are available from dealers. A wooden model of a Chalutier ship costs $149.95; a USS Ronald Regan model costs $999; a wooden model Schooner costs $26.96; a Harvey wooden model costs $110; a Cutty Sark Wooden model costs $189; and an Atlantic costs $195.95. There are various price ranges for the connoisseur.
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.
Until the appearance of the Vikings long boats in Northern Europe (of which several ships have been found and now are displayed in museums in Norway and Denmark) the development of marine technology can be assessed only from sparse old records, frescoes, seals and other visual representations. Contemporary ship models survived only from the period after the discovery of America by Columbus. Many of them were votive ships in churches, which had been donated as expression of gratitude for successful travel or rescue from disaster. In the 17th century shipyards began to make accurate models before starting the actual construction of ships (the so-called Admiralty models when built for the English navy).
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.
