OMH models are all handcrafted by skillful and experienced craftsmen. They are built to
scale according to the original plans or pictures of the actual ship using "plank on frame"
or "plank on bulk head" construction method.
The hull is joined by hundreds of small pieces of wood.
Inside the hull, quality epoxy is used to ensure the bonding of all wood planks,
thus prevent cracking in different climate.
OMH models are not KIT; they are completely built from scratch. Each model comes with a
nice wooden stand for display.
2. How are the ships measured?
All products from OMH are measured in maximum display dimension as illustrated in the below picture.
At OMH, we put the beauty of each model first, so we use the highest quality of
wood that are either locally available or from imported source such as rose wood, ebony, mahogany, teak, western red cedar… All
timbers are air dry or kiln dry before production to ensure completed products withstand
different climate across the globe.
4. Timing of work
It takes about two hundred hours to complete a model. New models or custom built
models require longer time. Each order usually take 1 to 3 months to complete.
