Do I need to provide the drawings?

It is possible to make the model using only several photographs. However, costs for the development of model design will be much greater.

The accuracy and reliability of the model design depend of the credibility and completeness of the information on the prototype used.

Therefore, it would be advantageous to provide us with all the available information including drawings, photographs, or illustrations at the contract stage of the project.

As a rule, payments are split into two parts as follows:

  • • The advance deposit (20…30% of the total cost of the order) after signing of the agreement, but prior to start the actual work.

You can use one of the following options:

How to minimize costs of the model?

We known the following ways to reduce the expenses:

  • • You can considerably minimize the price by ordering several models of one project. In this case our expenses will distribute on all models and the total price of each model will decrease. It could be possible that you need only one model, but perhaps the same models are needed for enterprise or organization, which work you with.
  • • You can also save our time and thereby reduce the design costs by providing us with the drawings of the prototype.
  • • You can also save by excluding or simplifying certain part(s) or details of the model(s). However we do not recommend this way because it can lead to the model being bare and uninteresting.

What will the model contain?

Usually, the models include details, which size is greater than 3mm.

Very small details don't add attractiveness to the model, but would raise the price considerably.

In any case, all the details shown in general view drawings will be represented on the model, according to our agreement with you.

Will inscription like “Made in …” on models?

Only those inscription, signs, allegories etc will be on the model, which are present on the prototype.

However we put the label on stand made of fine transparent film illustrating the “Admiral” company logo, address of this site and inscription “Made in Russia”. The size of this label is about 2×4cm and it can be seen only at a small distance.

How to choose a model scale?

We recommend to choose from the following scales:

  • • 1:25, 1:50 for boats and yachts
  • • 1:75, 1:100 for ships and vessels
  • • 1:150, 1:200, 1:250 for floating structures

These scales allow to do the models witch are enough saturated, interesting and they do not raise the expenses and price.

What display stands are available?

Usually we install models on a stand consist of a base made from laminated WSP (wood shaving plate), and decorative turned brass or aliminium pedestals that support the model.

They are inexpensive and would well match your office furniture and modern exhibition stands.

However, using WSP is not always motivated. For example, laminated WSP stand base would not look attractive under a battleship from the end of XIX century, or it will not suit for VIP present. In this case we can offer the base made from quality hardwood.

Do I need a display case?

The Model not protected by a display case, is subjected to various dangers, such as:

  • • Dust (attracted by static electricity generated on model)
  • • People (particularly curious and unwary visitors of exhibitions)
  • • Children and home animals (if the model is at home)
  • • Subjects of interior decor (for example, window curtain on draught)
  • • Insects (to be specific, products of their vital activity)

The transparent walls of display case protect the model against mechanical impacts, and contamination can be easily removed from it, without risk to damage model. Therefore, we urgently recommend ordering model with the protective display case.

For stands made of laminated WSP we offer inexpensive, light and durable display case with organic glass (organic glass can whack under a strong impact, but it never break into small sharp splinters; however, organic glass surface is unendurable to abrasion wear and possibly in 20…30 years it will need to be polished or changed).

If stand is valuable sorts wood we offer display case of framework (from same sorts wood) with silicate glass.

What for the transportation box is needed?

As a rule, we pack models in a durable plywood box, to protect the models and display case against damages during transportation. The lid of box is fixed by screws, so it can be used repeatedly. The Box for heavy or big size models is fitted out with a set of handles for carry.

Customer may not need the transportation box if the model is small and delivered to Customer by our courier, or Customer collects the model himself.

We recommend ordering the transportation box if you need to transportat the model repeatedly.

If Customer uses facilities of a shipping/transportation company for delivery of the model, packing models in the transportation box is obligatory.
