What Sets RBL Models Apart


RBL models are often handcrafted with incredible attention to detail. Each model is an outcome of hours of meticulous work, incorporating finely tuned components, whether it’s the rigging, deck furnishings, or hull.


High-quality materials such as solid kiln-dried mahogany or cast resin are often used in the making of RBL models, ensuring not only aesthetic pleasure but also longevity. The use of such materials provides a realistic texture and finish to the models.

Historical and Technical Accuracy

RBL models are often replicas of actual ships, boats, or yachts, designed based on original plans and photographs to ensure they are historically and technically accurate. This makes them not just decorative items but also pieces of educational value, especially for those keen on naval history.


One of the remarkable features of RBL models is the opportunity for customization.
