This Service is No Longer Available. Have you ever wanted to add the realism of cloth sails to your model ship, but been held back because you do not have the skills to sew them, or because they are too expensive, or perhaps they were not available for your particular ship model?
Cottage Industry Models, Ltd. is proud to announce the addition of hand-made cloth sails designed to fit most large scale plastic ship models on the market. These sails are made to order by us here in America from good quality light-weight off-white muslin with beige stitching, and best of all, they are available separately, so you only order what you need for your ship!
No more waste or expense from having to buy an entire set of sails for your ship when all you may want to show are the tops and top gallants with jibs. However, if you feel frisky go ahead and get the stuns’ls too!! It is entirely up to you.
Your sails will arrive separately, as shown below, washed, and pressed ready for cutting and trimming. All you need to do is carefully fix the edges with some CA glue and trim them to a smooth edge with sharp scissors.
If you need custom work, or the same sails in a larger size for some of the wooden ship model kits out there just email us for details. If you need awnings for your battleship, or some other situation let us know. We will be happy to help.
Once your order is placed it may take a couple of weeks at least to get it done, so be sure to take your lead time into account. If you have suggestions or ideas please let us know.
As of now, all pricing is on a custom basis. For information on availability and pricing, please use our Contact Us page to get in touch and we’ll work out the details.
