ABOUT ADMIRALTY SHIP MODELS
Because the finest things in life are crafted by hand, our priority is quality, not quantity
We are Admiralty Ship Models Ltd and are a United Kingdom registered company based in Bristol. We have been selling our fully assembled wooden ship models online since 2003 and we have more than 20 years' experience in building quality ship models. We offer handmade wooden ship models (scratch built static display model ships) and other nautical gifts at affordable prices. Each one of our famous historic ship models is handcrafted from scratch using the best wood (mature solid hardwoods such as teak) for excellent durability. Our models involve hundreds of hours of manually challenging work with minute attention to detail and every step in the build of our models requires very precise skills. This type of skilled craftsmanship is harder to come by these days.
Our handcrafted wooden model ships range from large-scale ship models to medium size models and general nautical decor. We are confident that the quality of our products is a class above that of other sellers. All our ship models are sold fully built and ready for display. We don’t sell kits.
We do not use wood veneer or plastic and we do not cut corners in the build of our model ships. All the ships decorations and ornaments are hand-carved wooden pieces. Our authentic models are not built from prefabricated kits but are based on the original Admiralty Ship Models plans available in the UK. All the model ship replicas on our site are completely scratch-built using a wooden plank on frame technique using wood that is cut and worked by our own craftsmen.
We thank you for showing interest in our work. We hope you enjoy browsing our website and appreciate the amount of work and attention to detail that has gone in each one of our model ships.

Bristol is a beautiful city and there are many things to do.
In the 18th century, Bristol was the second largest port in the country. The history of Bristol as a port stretches back over many centuries, with Bristol being listed in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle of 1051 as a port trading with Ireland. Over the years, the course of two rivers were diverted and a Floating Harbour was constructed to meet the needs of the city's flourishing port.
