WE SUPPORT OUR TROOPS AND COUNTRY. Wood Cutaway Model of SS Normandie. Framed Size: 22½" x 8-1/2". Each cutaway is an accurate, three dimensional, architectural model.
The pieces are multi-layer, micro-cut, wood cutaway constructions, reflecting the utmost in detail and attention to accuracy. Original blueprints and period photographs along with hand measurements, if possible, are used for the creation of each design. Approximately two months is then devoted to drawing the original multi-layer template for each item.Original construction blueprints, photographs, deck plans, books and even advertising brochures are used to guarantee the accuracy of each cutaway. Once the design work is complete, a computer-controlled laser is then used to cut and mark specially selected layers of basswood. After a layer has been cut, it is cleaned and carefully mounted to a baltic blue matte board. A total of six layers of basswood are hand assembled for each cutaway.
When the cutaway is complete, it is then sealed behind glass in a cherry finish hardwood frame. The highest level of quality in both work and materials is maintained to ensure museum quality cutaways. This integrity in both design and modeling skill has brought endorsements by many of the nation's museums, historical societies and memorial associations.
