They are all connected with rigging that are painstakingly fastened by hand in matching colors. On the main deck, you can spot a large wooden tower tied down with chains, a wooden canoe, and a white wooden bridge with metal railings. On the quarter deck, there’s a navigational area with metal steering wheels and a wooden cabin. The beakdeck and the quarter deck are surrounded with metal fences.

You can easily spot a row of metal cannons on the side of the hull, and large metal anchors hanging just above the waterline. There’s also a wooden rudder and a metal propeller to help the ship maneuver in the right direction. An attached wooden stand with a nameplate engraved “Fregatten Jylland 1860” is standard on this model ship. Our model was built according to scale through original plans, pictures and drawings.

Our Fregatten Jylland model ship comes fully-assembled and ready to be displayed.

The Fregatten "Jylland" or frigate "Jylland" is a unique ship, it is also the longest wooden ship in the world today. Also it is the Royal Danish Navy's last big warship built from wood, and having a traditional sailing ship rigging as well as a steam engine, it is a perfect representative for the transition from sail to steam power. It took part in the battle of Helgoland in 1864, which was the first naval battle in history where two fleets engaged each other without the use of sails, but only used their steam engines during the entire battle.The ship is now beautifully restored and on permanent display at the picturesque small town of Ebeltoft situated on the peninsula of Jylland, which also gave name to the ship when she was launched from the Naval Yard in Copenhagen in 1860.

Today the ship is a major tourist attraction and well worth a visit. It holds a special attraction to me, since my grandfather served on the "Jylland" during his term in the Royal Danish Navy.
It is indeed a strange feeling to walk around on a 140 years old warship, knowing that one's grandfather once walked the same wooden decks.

All of our model ships and boats are handmade from scratch.

They are built by very skillful and experienced craftsmen. They are also built according to the scale of the original full sized ships. We do this through the use of original plans or pictures and use a plank on frame construction method. The hull of our ships are joined by multiple pieces of dry thin wood.

Inside of the hull, we use a special glue that is imported just for this purpose. The glue makes the wood strips stay close together so that they will not split, crack or twist which can happen due to weather changes or humidity changes.

Our models are built completely for raw materials, NOT kits. We recommend that you purchase a display stand for each ship that you purchase to protect it from harm.
