Carlsbad California based SD Model Makers®, maritime replica model makers, announced the introduction their new detailed half hull model product offering, for both powerboats and sailboats.

SD Model Makers now offers both traditional and a new detailed half hull model styles. The traditional or "simple”, half hull model has the basic hull shape and color, from the deck down. The hull is normally painted and includes a mahogany baseboard and brass name plate. The new and unique “detailed” half hull models have the basic hull shape but also include above deck details such as wood trim; doors, windows and ports; hand railings, stanchions and lifelines; for sailboats a section of the mast, rope clutches, winches, cleats, etc. will be included. Essentially the detailed half hull is almost a full model, cut in half.

SD Model Makers owner, Captain Brad Poulos states “Everyone finds that commissioning a replica ship model a fun and engaging process and one which is rewarded with something will be kept forever. It will bring smiles to the faces of all who enjoyed her and discussions with those who wish they could have. Sometimes a full desktop model is a bit too much to display, whereas a half hull model is easy to display, as they are normally mounted on a wall. Typically built in the 12-16” hull length range, the models stimulate lasting memories and have a very traditional nautical look.”

SD Model Makers will work with individual boat owners and builders in replicating private power and sail boats, mega yachts and catamarans, to produce museum quality desktop replica models. Captain Poulos explains “The commissioning process is fairly straight forward - If you can take a photograph, you can have a model made of your boat. It is that simple! Working with photographs and available boat plans, line drawings and other resources, our model craftsmen work to create an exact replica model and build a masterpiece which you will be proud to display and cherish forever. We focus on the details, even reproducing a client’s exact helm station layout - down to the electronics package, gauges and wheel cover!”

Other replica ship model categories include Naval Warship Models, US Coast Guard Models, Tall Ship Models, Commercial Vessel Models and Ocean Liner Models. Visit the Chief of the United States Navy, dozens of museums, or even the White House and you will see examples of SD Model Makers replica ship models on display. Their master model makers hand craft each model with incredible attention to detail and true museum quality workmanship. The company has an extensive naval warship plan library that includes ANY Naval Warship from ANY Country! Customers can specify the service era or vessel configuration, as well as display case options.
