Wonderful place to watch how ship models are built by hand and to scale - if you have a photpo of your ship (and a plan) they can even build that customized. Very interesting to see handicraft in its perfection done by enthusiast. All models...More

You get to go and meet the people who make these magnificent ships, the care, skill and dedication that goes into making them is immense. You are able to see each step of the ship making process which is amazing.
