Chylds Hall Model Ship Yard ( Ship Yard) Model
One forty eighth
Last Updated: 3 August 2014
We do not supply complete kits, but specialise in manufacturing model components, which will hopefully make the builder’s life easier, and help him or her produce an accurate and eye-catching ship model.
The main emphasis is on more unusual historic vessels, not covered by other manufacturers. Although the current range may be limited, other designs are under development and it is planned that additional models and associated fittings will become available.
Our detailed glass fibre hulls are carefully researched, individually numbered and hand-made to order, so to a certain extent you are buying exclusivity.
Some of the scale fittings we manufacture are general items (for example, bollards and life-belts), and will be suitable for other models of 1/48th scale. Some are more unusual and are only produced by us. A lot of the fittings listed are designed to complement our hulls and nearly all are exclusive to Chylds Hall Model Shipyard.
We are conscious that many model makers enjoy the challenge of adapting commercial hulls or making some, or all, of the deck fittings and components themselves. Our fittings are, therefore, available separately from the hulls. If you are unsure, please talk to us, as we are happy to advise which fittings are best suited for completing the model.
All our hulls and most of our components have been designed by us and have been used in our workshop to build the first pre-production working models, so we know they work. We hope you will enjoy building a model based on one of our hulls or incorporating our components into a model of your own design.
