History

Nautical decoration and model ships have been around for many centuries, spanning cultures all around the world. The art of model ship building and collecting dates to the beginning of when ships themselves were invented. While model ship collecting started off as a hobby that only the well-off could afford, the times have changed and enabled people of any status to become collectors. This is due to the change in production that occurred with the Industrial Revolution. While manufacturers are now able to create many more model ships at cheaper prices, Handcrafted Model Ships still values the days when fine craftsmanship was a necessity.

Importance

The importance of model ship collecting lies with the millions of people around the world who still participate in the hobby. Aside from model ships, there are other great nautical decorations such as the bosun whistle. The bosun whistle, also known as the boatswain pipe, was historically used by the Greeks and Romans to coordinate the stokes of their slaves. Then during the Crusades it was used to form crossbowmen for attack. Due to its significance with maritime affairs, the use of the bosun whistle became commonplace with officers in the British and American navies.
