SS America (1939)

Now you can get this beautiful SS America model for your home or office decor. Our master craftsmen handcrafted this nicely detailed model from scratch using historical photographs, drawings, and original plan. In addition, we selected finest woods and material to build this model. Also, we use plank-on-frame construction method which is similar to the building of the actual ship.

The model has many details such as: All windows, doors, and portholes are cut out precisely thanks to hand-built hollow superstructure and hull; Open promenade decks visible through superstructure windows; Lattice grating on ducts and vents; Detail Lifeboats hung from launching davits; Delicate railings on forecastle, aft-castle and top superstructure; Rigging and stay-lines on all masts and smokestacks… Furthermore, we applied multi-layered paint to match the color of the real ship.

Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. She is mounted on a solid wood base and ready to display. It’ll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast, or passionate collector.

Built in 1940 and designed by the noted American naval architect William Francis Gibbs the SS America carried many names up until her wrecking in 1994.  Most notably she served as a passenger ship under the designation SS America.  In 1941 she carried two Nazi spies in her crew who were eventually caught by the FBI and charged with espionage.
