My first impression was "not another factory". How wrong I was. This is a really fascinating factory to visit - not at all what I was expecting. You w can wander at will among the small number of expert model makers, and ask whatever you...More

Never thought I'd end up looking at model boats but had a great time. Not something I would take home but well worth a look and fascinating models.

You get to go and meet the people who make these magnificent ships, the care, skill and dedication that goes into making them is immense. You are able to see each step of the ship making process which is amazing.

I have always been fascinated by ships and vessels. This place was an eye candy for me. They show you how they make replica of different models of ships. What is impressive is the attention to details. They have various replicas to purchase though it...More
