N Scale Ships

N Scale Ships provides accurate, detailed and well-executed ship models for model railroaders and marine enthusiasts. I specialize in ships in N and Z scale. Since every ship is modeled on a computer and cut with a digital cutter, I can transform the drawings to any scale.
I scratchbuilt my first model at age six. With a hand saw, a length of 2 x4, some scraps of 1-inch pine, and two sizes of nails, I hacked out my version of the mighty Missouri, and ruined my older brother’s wire cutters trying to clip the heads off 2.5″ nails. The 16″ main and 5″ secondary turrets could rotate.
Over the next 59 years, I modeled just about everything—ships, of course, but also flying and stationary aircraft, automobiles and, later, buildings and long-span bridges. My two N scale railroads, Pittston & DeWitte and The Portsmouth Branch, had many structures, most scratchbuilt; truss bridges up to 600′ in span; and ships from Navy harbor tugs to 500′ freighters.
The ships on this site are production models, not one-of-a-kind efforts. I gladly accept commissions for a specific ship.
