Project: Nautical ModelsDescription:
A contemporary model ship lends an air of class to any den, office, or living room. Cargo ships or yachts, speed-boats or barges, SMARTT has experience building just the right modern nautical model to suit your display needs. SMARTT can build or customize one of the many commercially available kits, or scratch-build your dream vessel.
For models with loads of intricate detail that constantly invite the viewer to peer closer, there is no match for model aircraft. Intricate cockpits with dials, gauges, and seatbelts . . . Landing gear with hoses and springs. . . Fine exterior details such as pitot tubes, open avionics bays, and antennae make the difference.
SMARTT ‘s familiarity with new technology, photo-etched parts, resin components, and even electronics can turn a box of plastic parts into a miniature work of art.
Let the award winning super-detail oriented artists at SMARTT build one for you.
A diorama can be that unique one-of-a-kind gift to celebrate years of service, cherished memories, or a particular milestone in one’s life.
This diorama was presented as a retirement gift to an executive of Rolls Royce Corporation’s Synchrolift Division. It depicts one of their dry-dock units that is capable of lifting a full sized ship out of the water and trucking it away for maintenance and repair on special rail-cars.
The submarine depicted is the USS Sea Poacher, seen here as it appeared in the 1960’s, when he served on it, after modernization upgrades were made to the 1940’s era hull and tower. The entire dock and lift mechanisms were custom built and the sub was modified to capture its later appearance
