This is a model that I have been working on for several months. The Ark has been made by cutting up a large 8 ft X 4 ft sheet of 3/4 inch knot-less pine. Each section has been shaped, layered and glued together to make the hull and keel. Most of the remainder has been carved from Bass (Lime) wood and then painted. This would definitely make a change from the usual Nativity scene at Christmas. I will send it by courier but it will not be cheap as its a real heavy lump. I estimate about £70.00.00 for the USA, £90.00 for Australia and about £30.00 for most of Europe. I will obtain a quote at time of purchase and will only charge the actual cost plus a small amount for the packaging.
