The story of The Spyglass Shop Model Ship Builders

When it comes to The Spyglass Shop model ships, you will be amazed on the process of building a handcrafted model ship. There more than 20 steps which are required hundreds of hours with the involvement of different department and model ship builder. Every step is carried out by skillful craftsmen with great concentration, meticulousness and attention to detail. When you take a closer look at our model ship, all of the extremely fine details will attract your attention especially our Model Tall Ship Collection.

All of our model ships and model boats are available as museum-quality, FULLY ASSEMBLED model. We are proud to build “Exclusive Edition” where the model has a unique serial number etched into the hull, which allows us to identify production date, material used and all other production information of a model.


Besides that, our master craftsmen using historical photographs, drawings or original plans meticulously handcraft these highly detailed wood models from scratch. They are built to scale with high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany. They are 100% hand built individually using plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to the building of actual ships. Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop.


Our model ship and model boat come standard with a solid wood base and brass nameplate with protective packages for maximum protection. If you’re looking for perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast or passionate collector, Old Modern Handicrafts the right destination for you. We provide model ship and model boat collection from our master ship model builder with the quality that you can trust.
