Here we have large scale Naval vessels and ships of the U.S. Navy. The kits vary in scale, from 1/350 to the massive 1/200.

These kits represent model ships from as early as WWI and as late as the nuclear powered aircraft carriers, and the newest ships of the fleet, such as the LCS series.

Ranging in size from about 12 inches to more than 36 inches, some of the navy ship models are quite long. But it's not just their size. They have intricate details all over them, and fine engraved parts.

Many aftermarket companies make photoetch, brass, and resin parts to take these ship projects to a museum quality build.

There has never been a time as modelers where so many great ship models have been offered, especially in these sizes and scales.

There's also a wide variety, from Liberty ships, to Destroyers, to Frigates, and the ever popular Aircraft Carriers. There's a kit for just about every modeler to assemble into a magnificent model to display.
