Models for general public sales

The models shown in the photographs on this page, and only this page, are those John has already built for general public sales. Any other models depicted on this site are shown for display purposes only, those models have already been sold or were single model commission modeling projects. Most of John's work over the past five years has been single model commissioned modeling projects, so the number of already finished models for general sales is limited to those shown on this page.

Please note that any model shown on this web site can be reproduced by John on commission. If you do not see a model of a ship or boat on this page that you would like to purchase, just send John an email to request an estimate for commissioning him to build a model specifically for you. There is a lot more about commissioning John to build a model on the Model Showcase page.

These models are of the Sandbagger "Bull", built in 1999 as boat in 3" diameter globe light bulb models. Unfortunately, two of the models developed a hazy deposit on the inside surface of the glass from out gassing of the various chemical glues used in finishing the models. John has since learned how to alleviate this problem, however this was learned after these models were finished and sealed in their bulbs.One of the models had no hazing, but the cork seal deteriorated to the point that it broke into tiny pieces that entered the bulb, leaving quite a mess of tiny bits stuck to the inside surface of the light bulb by static electricity. 

John attempted to repair all 3 of the original models, however two of the bulbs broke in attempts to clean the haze from the inside surface of the bulbs. Those two models are now housed in 4"x4"x2" plexiglass and mahogany cases, with brass screws. John was able to clean the cork bits out of the 3rd model's bulb successfully, and the bulb now sits atop a spanish cedar stand.
