Fionia Swan

The Fionia Swan ship model is an architectural piece built by the manufacturers of the real ship. When the real ship was sold to a new owner they were sent the model as well. Unfortunately the model took some damage in transit when its showcase was smashed. 
At 7 FEET LONG we had to create a special workspace to repair this ship to its original condition. A gash in the side of the hull was the mai
n issue. The original plastic propellers were also switched to much nicer authentic bronze ones. Our glassmaker then fit a new showcase to the original base.
