How to display a Model Ship.
Do you want to add pizazz to your ship model it's quick and easy.

This was created with balsa sticks cut a the same length placed close
to each other to make it look keel blocks from a dry dock. They were glued
to the base then the base was stained & varnished then the ship was glued
to the blocks or just placed on the blocks simple, creative and inexpensive.

We sell balsa strips 1/4 x 1/4 x 36" for 2.50 plus a base board you are all set.
