Museums & Research Organisations

The National Maritime Museum

Unrivalled historical collections on ships, seafaring, navigation, and the maritime arts, famous architecture in the setting of the ancient Royal Park at Greenwich - all these are hallmarks of Britain's National Maritime Museum. Information about the Museum's new galleries, its historic buildings, sister museums and the collections. There are also details regarding Corporate Membership, how to become a Friend and general information. Details about research opportunities, conferences, the library, picture library and much more. Recent additions include the Search Station, on-line conferencing and Port - the gateway to maritime information on the Internet.

Institute of Maritime History

The Institute of Maritime History is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the preservation and documentation of archaeological remains related to maritime history.

The Scottish Institute of Maritime Studies

The Scottish Institute of Maritime Studies has been in existence since 1972 and runs a highly successful post-graduate taught Diploma/Masters course in Maritime Studies. The key themes of the course are underwater (principally shipwreck) archaeology, the ethnology of maritime communities and the conservation of our maritime heritage. The Institute also carries out an active research programme on behalf of clients such as Department of Culture Media and Sport, Historic Scotland, National Maritime Museum and National Historic Ships Committee. Our web pages are being regularly up-grade with information out such projects.

Whilst we love sharing our enthusiasm for all things maritime, enquirers should be aware that we are extremely busy people often working to deadlines. So it may not possible to spend much time answering queries.

Mystic Seaport

Mystic Seaport is an outdoor maritime museum that tells the stories of  America and the sea. Located on a 40 acre waterfront site in the town of  Mystic, Connecticut, the Museum exhibits historic tall ships and small  boats, a New England coastal village and extensive collections of art, ship models and artefacts. The Museum also offers hands-on activities for children and adults, crafts demonstrations, educational programs and a variety of special events.

Professional Modelmakers

John Harvey

Established a decade ago, John has been making models for professional and private clients from all over the world. His portfolio of commissions include scale model ships, both radio control and static, and model fibreglass fabrication and mould making.

Jan Hack

I specialise in building wooden models by hand to a very high standard of detail and finish. Some of the models are made from solid wood, while others are made with planks on a traditional frame. I am very proud of all the models I have made, and am particularly proud of having built a model of Blue Doublet for HRH The Princess Royal. Most of my customers are boat owners who want a model made of their own boat, or are naval architects and boat builders who find my models to be very effective when promoting their services at boat shows and trade exhibitions.

Kissimmee Display Models

KDM also builds scale boats for discerning clients. These are museum quality models for either static display or full function radio control. They are ideally suited for use in the film and television industry or equally at home on a shelf in the den. Some photos are on the scale boat page.

To date two of the models produced by KDM have been featured on the cover and inside international publications devoted to the pursuit of fine scale model shipbuilding.
