Hi all.

We have a model ship here at work that is about 4 feet long and a foot or so wide. It has been stored on a table under glass for a very long time. Unfortunately over the weekend the cleaning service people knocked a table leg off and the ship fell. The glass protected it as much as possible but there are several broken pieces. Mostly small pieces that would require some detail and perhaps some repainting. We are located about 30 minutes north of Sacramento, CA. Does anyone have any recommendation on where I could take this to get fixed? Please let me know if I can provide any other info or pictures and I will be happy to get as much info out there for the help we need.

Thank you,

Nick

Do you have pictures of the model before the accident to see where all the loose parts go?

Even I don't seems to be too much damage and for sure it can be repaired ,I will advice to contact the original builders, they can handle the repair job , but in case you can not contact them , any good modeler in the area may be helpful to achieve the restoration process, be advised the model will be never been as when was original.

I am unaware of any pictures of the model when it was new or in original shape. I would assume some could be around, but I do know I can get pictures of the original ship that could help anybody who would repair it.

The original maker of this is overseas somewhere and I have no info on who that would be. Packaging and shipping would be a huge risk even if I did know who it was.

I am only 30 minutes away from Sacramento and 1.5 - 2 hours away from the bay area. If anyone knows of anyone in these areas I would really appreciate a contact. Thanks. I would even consider packaging and shipping to the LA area.

It seems to be this yacht Kisuca:

Yes, that was the ship. I appreciate the picture. I work for the brother of the man who owned that ship. The model is here at work and that is where it was broken. It would mean a lot to him to have this repaired.

I could do it, no problem. I'm in Redondo Bch area (LA) so you could arrange shipping. I have many years experience and was contracting for a while at JD Hobbies in San Pedro CA.

After looking at the pics, I would estimate between $200.00 -$300.00 including materials, shipping not included. Whatever you decide, I hope you can resolve this lil mishap, looks like a nice model.

Suggest you PM him, Dont post your email and phone in public domain, it's just asking for spam at the very least.
