Model Boats

Boat modelling is a craft as old as shipbuilding, and dates back to the development of water transport. In Vietnam, model boats hail from a woodworking village in Dong Nai, and there are hobby stores in HCMC where you can buy the boats. Replicas range from miniatures to complex, full-masted scale models. The time to complete a model boat ranges from five to ten days. There are reproductions of famous ships, sailing boats and ships in bottles.
 

Some of the most popular boat models include the RMS Titanic, HMS Britannia and USS Constitution. Fancy an historic tall ship, flash Florida speed boat or intimidating gunship? While you are in Saigon you can have your dream model custom built. Just remember to bring lots of pictures and blueprints! It usually takes hundreds of hours to handcraft a model. Construction woods vary but typically include kiln dried teak, mahogany, rosewood and other tropical wood.
