Ship Model Superstore Delivering
Quality Models since 2007
We are a small family owned and operated business. Ship Model Super
Store began when owners Robert & DeeDee Winfrey wanted to find a way to share their love of model ships with
the rest of the world "We have always enjoyed and admired model ships. The Ship Model Super Store provides us with
a means to share our love of these handcrafted models, and to network with other people who share our passion for
quality crafted wooden boat and ship models. We also bring to the familywww.militarymodelsonline.com a new store
loaded with hand crafted model planes"
Both Bob and DeeDee started assembling models at a young age as a hobby. They
spent many long hours assembling model kits and each would try and make their model have the best detail and the
most features. Fast Forward 30 years!

Although today we can't keep up with the demand for the products we sell, we
appreciate and understand what it takes to make a fine quality model and have it display well. We have both been
involved in retail sales and know a customer is always their first priority. You are not a number with Ship Model
Super Store; you are a person, and a friend who enjoys a hobby as much as we do. If you have a problem with an
order, we will never leave you hanging. We check our e-mail constantly and will take calls up to 8:00 pm eastern
standard time Monday - Friday. If you are not one-hundred percent satisfied with your order, contact us and we will
do everything in our power to make it right. Our customers are number one. We do not use gimmicks, fake sales (on
items that are out of stock) or use has-been celebrities to sell our products.
We both really enjoy the classic lines of the antique tall ship models.
The intricate details of the hull made as the real ship, plank on frame. The finished product requires an immense
amount of skill to transfer to something so small. To space the boards properly and bend them to the proper contour
takes time and skill that is hard to imagine unless you have tried to do it yourself. Each board is nailed and
glued to make sure it is firmly attached and will not warp or buckle.
The deck is now added and any special wood types are added now mahogany, cedar,
rosewood, teak and many other exotic woods.. The details are then added to the deck. All the small details like the
wheel house, the cabins, and the cannons and captains quarters are also added. These planks are also laid by hand
glued and nailed in place.
The finished hull structure is then sanded and varnished multiple times till the
finish is a smooth and as glossy as a dining room table.
After the jib mast is installed with the other masts it is time to start running the
rigging and hanging the sails. This to me is the most difficult part of building a ship model. There are hundreds
of feet of string required to rig the sails on this ship model. There is no glue involved as all the rigging is
tied with real nautical style knots. The rigging has to be taught for the sails to look correct and that is where
the skill is required. When completed this is the most aesthetic part of the grandeur of these ship
Now the rest of the hardware, deck cleats, cannon balls, windows, and all the
hardware which is made from metal and plated gold brass or chrome.
All this work takes hundreds of hours to complete and yet these boat models are very
affordable in our store .
