Whether it is a military ship, a commercial liner or your own pride and joy, the SD Model Makers craftsmen can make them all, with incredible attention to detail and museum quality workmanship.

SD Model Makers founder and President, Captain Brad Poulos states: "Our Naval Warship models are only made-to-order, meaning that we do not stock any pre-made models. Only when a customer tells us the size and/or scale desired do we build the model. Each model comes fully assembled with a solid hull - hand carved from kiln-dried mahogany. Other parts are made from a variety of woods, putty, resin and metals. Every model includes brass pedestals, a polished mahogany base board, and a brass name plate. As specified by the customer, each ship model is configured as appropriate to the vessel and service era desired. If it's an aircraft carrier model, all scale model aircraft and assorted deck machines are included. Additional options include "weathering" or camouflage paint schemes, keel block mounting, ships seals and display cases.

SD Model Makers offers true museum quality naval warship models, in virtually ANY size or scale desired. Models build times are typically 12-16 weeks. SD Model Makers' motto – "We offer our clients, quite simply - The finest ship models in the world!"

"We have access to an extensive naval warship plan library and can make a replica model of just about any modern naval warship afloat, from 1895 onward. Providing models as gifts, office displays or trade show exhibits in any size or scale for current service members, veterans, ship builders and boat yards is a core competency of our business. The expansion of our naval warship model offering provides our clients with an opportunity to own unique display models, with incredible detail and workmanship – quite simply, the finest ship models in the world!" says Poulos.

SD Model Makers offers museum quality replica ship models of commercial, military and private vessels. The company can produce ship models in any size or scale desired, as well as display and transportation cases. For further information Captain Brad Poulos at (760) 525-4341.
