Ship Model Packaging
Our ship models are valuable, detailed and delicate works of art which have taken hundreds of hours and effort to build. Our work is precious to us as it is for you the customer. This is why Admiralty Ship Models has developed a special packaging technique which resulted in a zero breakage record of our ship models during transportation.
We have optimised our packaging technique for the toughest level of protection during handling by courier or air freight forwarders. We have sent more than 1000 ship models, large and small, via this method to Europe and as far afield as the USA, India, Mexico, Japan and Australia without any issues.
We have had a 100% success record in using this form of packaging and using our special delivery arrangements with UPS and DHL as courier.
The ship model dimensions quoted on our website are the overall model height (wooden base to highest point), the overall width (utmost extremities) and the overall length (bowsprit tip to tip).
If you wish to purchase a display case for your model, we recommend that you wait to receive the ship model and then measure it carefully. The display case supplier will be able to advise you how much bigger the case should be in order to adequately fit the model ship inside it. We are now supplying acrylic display cases for our own models. Please contact us if you would like a display case for your model boat.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT OUR PACKAGING
Shipping was on time. It was so well packaged I could have done with a chainsaw to release it. A pleasure doing business with a professional outfit.
The packaging was fantastic. You have made it very safe for bumps and poor handling with very good support in the box itself.
Model arrived 4 days early and in perfect condition. Packaging could resist a nuclear warhead. Almost needed a chainsaw to unpack ;).
Was nervous a bit about shipping to Canada but it had an absolutely amazing and sturdy packaging. The customer service is amazing.
