About Us

TrueModelShips only provides authentic, high-quality model ships and nautical decor. We donít provide kits; all model ships and decors are handcrafted. All of our model ships come directly from our manufacturer in California. The process of selecting the manufacturer of our model ships took several months as the many manufacturers do not meet our standards and quality control.

The manufacturer of our model ships, HMS, had been building model ships since 1959. They concentrated on the smallest details with the original ships and boats to make sure that their customers are satisfied with their purchase every time. This process took years to perfect since every ship and boat needs to have the same precise details. The ships and boats that do not meet the quality standards are destroyed.

True Model Ships is one of Peazz.com Stores, we had been in the online business since 2004 and shipped all over the country. Our experienced logistic team ensures that you receive the furniture in excellent condition every time. We constantly comb the web to make sure that our customers at the lowest possible prices. If there is something that you are looking for and cannot find on our website, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are passionate about providing the best customer service, products and shopping experience on the web.



Authenticity is very important; therefore, every available resource and details to insure that the models are as authentic as possible.

Research on All Handcrafted Ships


After the research is complete, we use the software CAD to draft a 3D image of the ship and a majority of the tiny wood pieces.

Component Construction

Only the best quality woods were used to make the different parts of each ship. The wood includes: cherry, birch, maple, blackwood, white lotus, walnut, rosewood, teak, yellow siris and light ebony, and more.

Each piece is made by hand; to reduce the time and cost of making these pieces, the computer is attached to a laser cutter, which cuts the piece perfectly every time.

After the completion of all necessary pieces for the ships, the construction process begins. Each stage of the specialized construction process has experts monitoring. This allows the models to be made faster, and still meet the high quality standards.

Assembly of All Model Ships


The final stage of the process is inspection. Once a model meets the strict quality standards, then it is made available for sale. For every order placed, it is inspected before shipped.
