About the MV Tacoma Washington State Ferry ship model
The MV Tacoma Washington State Ferry ship model has been scratch-built by master craftsmen, using her original plan and photographs. The model has been painted in its distinctive green and white colours. This model requires hundreds of hours of work before completion and undergoes a stringent quality control process before leaving the workshop. The team of master craftsmen make use of their skills and expertise to build the hulls and bridges exclusively out of hand-picked hardwoods. Also used for building real-life ships, the construction method is known as the plank-on-frame technique, and takes years to master. In order to create a smooth finish, the model ship is sanded and varnished, before the painting begins. The details on this ship have been replicated using polished brass and metal finishes. The MV Tacoma Washington State Ferry model ship would make an exquisite addition to any space. The model is mounted on a solid wooden base and includes a brass plate. This model is not a kit and is ready for display.
