Don't build a wooden model ship without this collection of essential tools and supplies! Cast Your Anchor offers specialized tools for the model ship builder. Not only is model ship building our business but it's our hobby too! We only sell hobby tools that we use and are happy with - check out our recommended hobby tool list.
We always suggest that you first look around home for household items that you can adapt for modeling use. After that you should only buy tools that meet your level of interest and competence.
We carry an excellent selection of small precision tools such as files and rasps as well as full hobby tool sets and a series of hobby power tools including hobby lathes. We also carry a line of fine craft tools designed for intricate model building and repair work. As enjoyable as building model ships can be, it can be even more enjoyable when you have all necessary woodworking tools at your fingertips!
Listed below are suggested tool packages that the new modeler would find useful. Start off by looking around your home for tools that you already have. The builder will need items like tweezers and clothespins. You can also make up jigs for tasks like bending wood or holding the model in place while you are working on it.
