Historical shipmodels

All historic models illustrated are hand-crafted from local wood following traditional patterns and production methods handed down in the family. The fabric sails for instance are ennobled in a complex process and lead to the distinctive appearance of our historic ship models.  All painting and the knotting of the rigging is, of course, also done by hand. The models range from Columbs’ caravels to the Viking boats and the trading cogs.
