SD Model Makers delivered their fifth commercial vessel scale model to Palatka Florida based St. Johns Shipbuilding. The 36.25 inch 1/52-scale model ship replicated St. Johns latest build, a 157 foot Offshore Support Vessel “Sea Strength” for A.R. Singh Contractors, Ltd. out of Trinidad. The OSV will be used in their pipe laying and offshore construction services.
“Using scale replica models for industry trade show exhibits and customer gifts provide an opportunity to highlight our vessels quality and features in a traditional nautical format. Each of the ship models we’ve commissioned from SD Model Makers has been a fine example of quality workmanship and attention to details.” stated Susan Nettles, St. John’s Marketing and Sales Director.
SD Model Makers owner, Captain Brad Poulos explains: “We specialize in making museum quality ship models. We have built scale ship models of all types of workboats – container ships, tug boats, LNG carriers, OSVs – even offshore oil platforms. Providing models as gifts, office displays or trade show exhibits in any size or scale for ship builders, boat yards and vessel owners is a core competency of our business.”
