ShipYard Paper Models

Paper model kits make a great, inexpensive alternative to wood ship modeling. Shipyard makes some wonderful lighthouse and model ship kits include patterns and colorful sheets of parts with details such as correct planking and treenail patterns already printed on them. Note that many parts need to be glued onto card or paper stock that you’ll have to provide in order to build up their thickness, but the patterns for all the parts are included.

Note that paper ship model kits do not include dowels for masts or sail material. These can be made from your own materials, or purchased as separate accessories.

Laser Cut Kits are boxed kits that include not only all parts laser-cut, but also include dowels, cannon barrels, eyebolts, rigging lines, blocks, deadeyes, and even paints and paintbrush. People new to paper models or those wanting to give a nice gift may want to start with one of these since they are more of a complete package.
