Ship models are the oldest of all modeling topics.
Such items have also been found from the Egyptian and early Roman times.
Initially, scaled-down replicas and parts of ships were carved from wood.
Today those are mostly made from polystyrene by injection molding.
Because the history of ships embrace such a large historical period larger than e.g. cars, the ship models cover also a very rich history.
Ship models categories:
- Civil Ships models
- Sailboats models,
- Warships models,
- Submarine models
The most typical scale is 1: 350
That indicates how much experience you need to assembly. 1 is the easiest whereas 5 is the most difficult one.
