These handcrafted museum quality wooden scaled ship models are made by Den Holmes from Abbottstown, Pennsylvania, United States.
Den Holmes said about his hobby:
” It started from a simple interest and simple ship building but has grown into a love of building these ships, as has my skills over the years.
My hobby has turned into making and selling my ships. “

The scale of this ship model is 1/96.
The model is 27″ long x 12″ wide, and 25″ high mid-ship.
