Ship Model Conservation
Proper care and periodic conservation of ship models will not only ensure their longevity, but also preserve your investment. As with most antiques and objects of art, marine models created of stable materials should last indefinitely. Factors which will adversely affect a model's life are sunlight, extremes of temperature, humidity, dust, and improper handling or transportation. The American Marine Model Gallery's professional staff will come to your location to perform conservation or restoration services on models and their cases, expertly advising on optimal display and other considerations.
And, because many of our ship model clients have other types of collections, e.g., soldiers, trains, cars, planes, tin toys, artifacts, memorabilia, etc., we can for the most part provide comparable services to those items or collectibles.
