specially designed models,
historic ship models and restorations
All ship models are personally manufactured and/or implemented by Mr.
Oltmann. Basic material is wood, the traditional building material for
ships and ship models. Each work is accomplished on the basis of plans
or engineering drawings, as far as they are available by the customer
and/or by his extensive archives. The work is always finished in time,
especially for fairs, presentation or ceremonies. For each work a
binding cost estimate will be given.
Please visit him at his home (address as given above) to talk to him
and for inspection of his works. In addition you can have a look at his
works at the fair Bootsausstellung Hanseboot in Hamburg in October each
year. He usually has a stand there, at the special exhibition ART
MARITIM, where many people show their works in maritime art.
The pieces made by him do not only have private collectors as their
customers. Also shipyards (Blohm & Voss and Bremer Vulkan), shipping
companies (Briese, Bischoff), yacht designers (as judel/vrolijk), yacht
dealers, and water sports clubs have been customers. Some ship models
have traveled far, not only to Western European countries, but also to
Japan, Australia, Canada, USA, and Venezuela.
Producing half-hull models (and other ship models) is his profession
since 1995 after getting used to it as a hobby nearly 25 years ago.
Mainly he makes unique works for private collectors or models for
special business purposes like representations on fairs or presents for
colleagues. His favourite material is wood to show its beauty in its
different shades. But even when the model is painted like the original,
it is made of wood. Size, details and the ground plate can be very
different. Whether you like only the hull or prefer a detailed deck
layout, maybe inclusive the (half) rig, all your ideas will be realised
in perfect quality and sent to you by mail.
The best basis for a good model is to have construction plans from the
hull, the deck layout, the rig and as many photos as possible to work
out the details you like. Maybe there are plans of your boat-type in his
archive. For unique works, the price must be unique as well.
Before he starts working, of course, you´ll get a cost-estimate. To give
an idea: A half-hull model of about 40 cm, with deck house of about 20
cm and a ground plate from plywood will be about 500 €.
Making the half-hull model will take 3 to 4 weeks, depending on the
complexity of the model and what is waiting for him in his workshop.
He lives and works in the small village Leuchtenburg near Schwanewede
