About the Vessel
Texaco Stockholm is a much-acclaimed oil tanker from the past years, which was built in 1977. The sturdy container vessel, which weighed around 17,672 tonnes, always managed to perform superbly with the help of its robust construction.
Making the Model Boat
Our build process starts with confirming a ship model that needs to be replicated to the perfection. Further, we get the structural details to get the accuracy of the model. For this, we do a holistic research using online as well as offline mediums available to us. We collect data from every possible image of the original ship. We then pass all of this information to our craftsmen to create the model ship with complete conviction.
Our build process involves the following steps:-
- The Plan Preparation
- Creating the Structure or Skeleton
- Fibre Glass
- Body Filler
- Assembling the Deck Structure
- Quality Control
We understand that most of our clients want a unique model that is not easily found in the market. Hence, we fulfill this demand with thorough research to ensure that every bit of the boat is captured with a great accuracy. You can actually expect boutique models made from high-quality materials such as hardwoods, resins, and fibreglass.
We take special care in ensuring that the finishing and colour of the ship model really match with the original boat. Usually, we undercoat paint and finish the model. Each of these processes are executed in sync with the customer’s customisation requirement or matched perfectly with the ship’s original layout. We know that most of the ship models are used for gifting purposes to the people who love to collect exclusive ship models. Hence, we craft each ship model with utmost care and passion so that it can be cherished for a lifetime.
