Our Ship Model Craftsmanship: Quality and Precision

At Ocean & Architectural Models Ltd, we pride ourselves on creating handcrafted models of ships and offshore installations. These are not just mere representations, but works of art, meticulously sculpted with precision accuracy. As an award-winning modelmaker, the excellence of each model is guaranteed through the expertise and skill of our craftsmen, backed by a team of technicians who possess solid backgrounds in engineering and design. These artisans work diligently to transform raw materials into detailed replicas, using their keen eye and steady hand to bring the intricacies of these structures to life.

Customising Your Maritime Models

One of our main focuses is the creation of precision scale bespoke models. A significant portion of the models we construct are commissioned by companies or individuals who require a specific design. Whether it is a one-of-a-kind model or an entire fleet of the same ship, we work closely with our clients throughout the entire process. With modern communication methods, we can efficiently exchange technical data, drawings, and images by e-mail. Our technicians, proficient in CAD, use this information to create a model that meets your specifications and exceeds your expectations.

The Shipping Container: A Model of Globalisation

One of our most popular models is the shipping container. These freight containers are not just reusable transport and storage units, but symbols of global trade and commerce. With an estimated nineteen million intermodal containers worldwide, a significant portion of long-distance freight generated by international trade is transported in these containers.

The invention of the shipping container made a profound impact on the globalisation of commerce in the second half of the 20th century. It dramatically reduced the cost of transporting goods, revolutionising long-distance trade. The humble shipping container, therefore, represents a significant turning point in the history of global commerce.

Shipping Container Models: An Homage to Global Trade

Our customised models of shipping containers are a tribute to this remarkable innovation. Through our detailed and accurate replicas, we aim to capture the essence of these essential structures. The models serve as a tangible reminder of the shipping container’s role in shaping the world as we know it today. Whether you are a history enthusiast, a maritime professional or simply someone who appreciates the beauty of intricate craftsmanship, our shipping container models will make a fascinating addition to your collection.
