Billing Boats

Billing Boats are the world leader in model ships.  From beginner to expert we stock Billings Boat kits to match your level of experience.

Billings Beginner Boat Kits: Choose this level if you have never tried model boat building before. These models all have a simple construction. But remember: Even the easiest model takes more than one evening to build!

Billings Advanced Beginner Boat Kits: Once you've built a few models, you'll probably find the sets in this category well within reach. Some of the more detailed work on these models, however, is left up to you.

Billings Experienced Boat Kits: This level is for those who have tried to build a model ship before, or perhaps one of plastic. These models also have a simple construction, though you will meet a number of 'challenges' on the way!

Billings Expert Boat Kits: The well-trained model builder will find many challenges - and many hours of intensive occupation - with these large and impressive models. These sets require lots of dexterity and a perfect technique. And you'll be on your own with a lot of the details in the models.
