Mr. Oltmann has learned much about the huge variety of different model
types by many years of restoration of ship models and yacht models.
There were very old half-hulls as well as historic static display models
and those made of glas fiber reinforced polyester. Pond yachts needed
repairs, and so did cogs, caravels and full-rigged ships of the great
times of sail. Since the mid 1800s people made dioramas with models in
harbour surroundings or at sea.
He worked for ship yards and shipping companies, when their
representative models got damaged on transport, or needed some new
painting or when the cargo had to be changed due to a new charterer.
A price estimate can be given after judging on the damages or the
alterations required. The work time will be priced by 30 Euro per hour,
