When the Liu Lui Hai arrived in 1979, the first Chinese ship to dock in the U.S. since 1949, we met her with bilingual banner that said ” Warmly welcome our Chinese friends.” China Ocean Shipping Company (COSCO) celebrated the history event 20 years later presenting the model of LUHE to the Port of Seattle and this ship model is now in MOHAI museum in Seattle, Washington State.
We offer this beautiful model of LUHE Cosco Container ship and you can have it in your home or office. Our master craftsmen handcraft these nicely detailed models from scratch using her photographs, drawings and original plan. The model is built to scale with top quality wood such as teak, mahogany with hollow superstructure and hull. She is 100% handcrafted individually using plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to to building of actual ship. Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. This model is mounted on solid wood base and ready to display.
