Welcome to Domanoff's Workshop — home for model makers tools, ship modeling tools and materials

If you are fond of model making, especially ship model making, this site is just the right place for you.

Domanoffs Workshop Domanoffs Workshop

Here you will find some handy tools and machinery, which may significantly ease the construction process. Take a moment to browse through our products and you will discover new ways to work with tiny details and to make your ship model look even more like the real ship by using self made ropes.

Being a ship modeler over a decade now, I have faced all sorts of challenges in connection with scale modeling, and I finally came up with several quite helpful tools which I am now glad to offer (see Products section). All tools are thoroughly tested and modified prior to launching them to the market. All parts are laser cut with СNC machine. Each tool is assembled and tested prior to package and delivery. However due to the parcels handling by the Russian Post some of our products may be damaged on their way. If that happens, contact us directly and we will send replacement parts or the new product.

Apart from tools we also supply hand-made ropes of various diameters and colors as well as supplements to ship models kits.

Ropes supplied with model kits look like threads which can really spoil the model. Hand-made ropes are scale copies of the real ropes.

The purpose of supplement kits is to replace those parts of the model which do not look to scale or are of poor quality. Generally all supplements are made of pear by means of СNC machine. Supplements include such elements as ship name plates, doors, ornamental elements, etc.
