  Ship Models  
 

Model ships have always been the icons and decor for everyone who loves the sea and large waters. For hundreds of years tall sailing ships plowed the high seas of the known world. Most of them were traders and cargo vessels carrying goods and a few passengers from one country to another.  This was the commerce in those days that brought nations and cultures together.   Some of them were pirates who plundered and stole from the wealthy merchant ships and some were warships designed to protect that commerce and the countries they represented, but most of them were just honest sailors making a living on the high seas.  These ships were manned by hearty young sailors and commanders whose legends extend to us to the present and have left us the romance of those times.  "Give me a tall ship and a star to guide me".
