Bone ships, Wooden Model Ships
 by Larry Pulka

Museum Quality Scale Model Bone Ships & Wooden Ships!

If you are looking for museum quality model ships, such as bone ships and wooden model ships, you've come to the right place!!! My name is Larry Pulka and I have been building model military and merchant ships like the one below since 1976!

"Cutty Sark" circa 1869

There are only about a dozen people in the world who build model ships from exotic woods exclusively. I use a variety of tropical woods such as Ebony, African Mahogany and Jatoba, as well as domestic woods, like Cypress, Apple, and Butternut.

My wooden model ships are crafted using the various natural colors of the woods themselves instead of paint or stain! I look at the wood like an artist looks at his paint palate. A creamy-white color is old American Holly and Bloodwood is obviously a red color. English Yew is orange. I can get almost any color I need just from the wood!

A great deal of preparation and planning occurs before I even pick up a saw or a knife. I research the original ships and try to find blueprints to use to make each ship as realistic as possible! I build each model ship in what is known as dockyard style or admiralty class style, which means that I build my ships exactly like the original full size ships were built! Each ship is signed and numbered!
