Join us to Listen to the fascinating stories of Cemal Ozturk, a professional BAE- Systems approved model maker who has witnessed remarkable changes in his craft over the years.  Are you fascinated by ship models, maritime history, craftsmanship, or model making? If you are, you cannot miss the opportunity to attend the talk. Cemal Ozturk is an approved model maker by BAE-Systems with many incredible stories to share about the art and history of ship modelling and the techniques used to create intricate models.

While traditional ship modelling techniques are still widely used, there is no doubt that technology has brought advancements that can significantly assist in building ship models. For instance, 3D printing has become increasingly popular for creating detailed and intricate parts. Additionally, CAD software can be used to design and plan the construction of ship models with precision.

Building ship models is a craft that requires precision, patience, and attention to detail. Standard techniques like plank-on-frame construction, plank-on-bulkhead construction, and solid hull construction make these models incredibly detailed and intricate. Modellers use specialised tools such as tweezers, miniature saws, and sanding blocks to create these details. If you want to learn more about ship modelling or have the same passion for the craft as Cemal Ozturk you will enjoy this particular event which starts off our Summer evening talks series.
