Limited Editions

      All our models are Limited Editions. due to their very low production output.. We usually make 5-20 models of each ship. Re-issues are possible, but most likley new release  will reflect the ship in her new state after refits and refurbishings. It means that only very small number of models are made reflecting the actual ship’s look within certain period of time.


Wait Lists

       We produce models in very small quantities and without guarantee of their re-issue in future. In order to a reserve model you want, we strongly recommend to pre-order it by joining our waiting list via email request. You can still join wait list during production cycle if models are still available.

      We will notify you via email when model is ready. If not purchased within 10 days after email notification, the pre-ordered  model will be returned to general stock. 

       Wait lists are important and sensitive tool for making business decisions on priority and quantity of our product and we kindly ask you to make your pre-orders thoughtfully. 

        Please email   to be placed on waiting list for model of your choice.


Layaway plans

1.   Any purchases totaling $200.00 to $600.00 - 2 payment plan: 1/2 down, 1/2 in 30 days.
