Model Crate For Model Ship Transport

Hi All,

Unsure if this is the correct place to ask my question....

 

Does anyone have plans/instructions for a Model Ship Crate/s?

(I am looking at a potential house re-location and need to make a Crate/s or similar for this purpose.)

 

If not a "Prototype" could someone please supply a URL for something generic?

 

(Cutty Sark/Bluenose II/Pen Duick/Mare Nostrum are the completed items that I need to transport. They are currently in Cabinets but with the Glass in the Cabinets are rather heavy, (Esp. Cutty Sark))

 

Any assistance/advice would be gratefully received.

 

Apologies in advance if I have posted in the incorrect place.

 

Cheers and Regards,

 

Harry. (HOF)

Thanks Mark.

I have done the Google thing for Model Ship Crate, not much chop....

Anyway, the potential move is about 300km? (Wellington to Taranaki, North Island, 3.5 - 4.0 hours drive.)

Would be a Furniture removal company.

 

A ship like the Cutty Sark, for example, is delicate and large. (The model by itself probably weighs 4.0kg?)

The cabinet that it's in is about 50kg with glass, so I am concerned. (The cabinet is designed to come apart, I thought it may be better to create a "Crate" for transport.

I have some movers coming next week to give me their appraisal/estimation for the house lot also.

 

Cheers and Regards,

Harry,

 

I moved my ship models from Hong Kong to Beijing and finally to Devon {UK).  Each time the shippers built stout crates from pallet timber, lined with polystyrene, and wedged polystyrene blocks around the hulls and between the yard ends and the crate sides.  Other than a couple of fittings that were shaken loose, they travelled just fine.
