Are all wooden models handmade?
Yes, all our wooden models are completely handmade (from the woodwork to the painting and sewing the sails).
What is the difference from an assembly kit?
An assembly kit means that all the parts of the model are to be assembled by the client, piece by piece. Our models, instead, are produced starting from the raw material, wood. After the paintwork, all parts are put together, including the sails. Eventually the completely finished product is ready to be displayed.
What kind of wood is used?
Two kinds of wood are used: so called "soft" wood, like Canadian maple, cedarwood or beech, or "hard" wood, like teak or rosewood.
How should you read the measures of the models found on the site?
All measures are in centimeters and indicate the total volume of the article, including the base.
Are the models delivered completely assembled in all detail?
Yes, the models are delivered assembled, ready to be displayed.
What kind of packaging is employed?
The packaging is very important since it assures that your order arrives undamaged. The speedboats are packed in simple or double cardboard boxes with made-to-measure styrofoam "molds" inside, that prevent the boat from moving during delivery. The ships, instead, are carefully fastened in rigid wooden cages and then put in simple or double cardboard boxes, finally protected by foam sheets.
How are the models shipped?
We employ specialized express couriers.
How long does the delivery take?
Delivery is usually in 48-72 hours from the moment we receive the order and the payment, excluding Saturdays and Sundays, but until April 3, due to the current situation, the delivery times (ETA) may be delayed.
What is the cost of delivery?
Free delivery in Italy from as low as 60 €. Delivery fees abroad vary depending on the destination.
What are the options for payment?
Payment is by Paypal, credit card or bank transfer.
What if the model delivered is damaged?
Should your order arrive damaged in spite of the careful packaging, you are entitled to a full refund in 14 days or, if you prefer, the shipment of a new article.
Does Il Principe del Mare restore old models?
Yes, one of the services we offer to our clients is the repair and restoration of old models.
