Model Ships FAQ

01 How should I display my model ships?

Dust and filth should be kept out of a ship model. Under glass or acrylic is a tried and true approach to show a model ship. As a general guideline, any display case should be at least 2" (50mm) larger than the model proportions in width, height, and length.

02 How long does it take to make a model ship?

Depending on the builder's experience, one kit can take anywhere from one to several hours to complete. Building a skill level six kit might take hundreds of hours. The remaining four levels can be found anywhere in between.

03 Do model ships float?

A functioning model should be able to run on water. Waterproofed, durable for travel and use, and most significantly, buoyant or float on water are all requirements for RC model ships.
