Model Ship Repair

Pat repairs model ships, too!

A customer of a well known barge firm received a 1:48 towboat display model with shipping damage. I was contacted about repairing the damaged model, and was able to respond with a quote and offer to work to a P.O.

The model was unlabeled and undocumented at this point in time, but was likely built at the same time as the original vessel in the 1980’s. It sustained relatively minor crushing damage to masts and railings, and the mounts were fractured.

All was put to right, and a new acrylic display cover was fabricated to replace the damaged one.
