0ur Laughing Whale ship model catalog by BlueJacket Shipcrafters

The Laughing Whale was a small Maine-based ship model kit manufacturer that specialized in local small craft and historic ships with a New England connection. The company was acquired by BlueJacket Shipcrafters, Inc. in 1993. They have since put forth a major effort and upgraded the parts, fittings and instructions. All the Laughing Whale models are either plank on frames or plank on bulkhead construction. They now feature laser-cut parts, redrawn plans and updated instructions. We are confident they will satisfy your desire for a quality kit to build.
BlueJacket rates ease of construction of their kits through three experience levels, Ensign, Captain, and Admiral. They further divide these levels into thirds. The Ensign kits are fine for those with little or no experience, the Atlantic only for those most experienced modelers. When you click on one of the small pictures below you will be taken to large pictures of each model. At the top of these pictures you will see BlueJackets difficulty rating for that particular kit.

BLUEJACKET MODEL SHIP KITS AT NATURE COAST HOBBY SHOP

Since 1905, BlueJacket Ship Crafters have been in the ship modeling business and creating some of the finest kits found anywhere. They offer both plank-on-bulkhead, plank-on-frame, and solid hull kits. Their solid hulls are carved from laminated basswood so there will be no warping or cracking, and these are found in the majority of their large kits. BlueJacket rates ease of construction of their kits through three experience levels, Ensign, Captain, and Admiral. They further divide these levels into thirds.

The Finest Model Ships

Definitely worth a stop...you may take up a new hobby, building model ships, as a result of your visit. Housed in an interesting building, this shop, which can also be accessed on-line, has a museum of model ships of all types, sailing ships, tankers, everything...and, most can be either made for you by their team of craftsmen or (even more fun, as my DH can attest) they will sell you the kits and you can build them yourself.
