Description

For a model shipbuilder, the devil is in the details. Every tiny piece, from hull planks to halyards, needs to fit together perfectly. But at a distance, how can you identify what makes a miniature masterpiece? Take a closer look at this nautical tradition with professional modeler Rob Napier. Learn about the precision that goes into each model, then check out the 40th Annual Model Ship Show. Inspect their intricate details before voting for your favorite! These really are the Best of the Best—see for yourself!

About the Expert:
In his over 40-year career, Rob Napier has worked to repair and conserve models—including at the USS Constitution Museum, where he is restoring a 140-year-old model of “Old Ironsides.” He bases his own original models on extensive research, combing through records to create his plans. Mr. Napier’s maritime experience spans beyond miniature ships to yacht racing, boat building, commercial fishing and U.S. Navy service.
