I'M MOVING IN 2020; Yes, I'm moving this year to Queensland for better opportunities and lifestyle, this wont be happening until I'm fully up to date in my orders, probably late this year. Some of my coming soon ships will be postponed for an indefinite period of time while I sell my current property, move and set up in my new residence which will take some time. I am very grateful to those who continue to order hulls I already have available from the mould. No Custom scratch build orders will be commenced from now (Feb 2020) until established at my next residence, unless already discussed through email.
PLEASE NOTE; I generally keep all hulls destroyer size and smaller in stock by 1 or 2 hulls to facilitate quicker shipping. Cruisers or bigger I manufacture only when ordered. Please dont hesitate to contact me with any questions. I've had many email and computer issues, so if I have not replied to an email previously, then please send your email again.
Specialising in the 72nd scale Radio Control model ship market, the ship hulls on this site have been painstakingly researched and built using the latest research available. These ships range from the Early Dreadnought era (1905) through to the Missile armed ships of Today. Worldwide, this scale of model is growing in popularity, as many of the aircraft that operated from some of them are available in this scale. This scale also allows for a greater level of detail than smaller scales, it also makes smaller vessels such as Destroyers and Corvettes easier to install RC gear with the larger access. As Aircraft Carriers in this scale are huge and many people neither have the room nor the ability to transport them, 144th scale aircraft carriers will be coming available in the near future(2019 UPDATE; ONLY THE INVINCIBLE CLASS CARRIER WILL BE FINISHED IN 1:144 SCALE AND NO 35TH SCALE PT BOATS WILL BE COMPLETED IN THE FORE-SEEABLE FUTURE). The demand for 1:72nd scale ships is too great for me to create a range in other scales. We aim to provide you, the valued customer, with quality handmade Naval and Civilian model ship hulls for that next project that you have always wanted.
