The Lauck Street Shipyard has been dedicated to helping modelers of all skill levels for over 10 years now. Our products teach modelers valuable techniques proven to work. Our exclusive and comprehensive College of Model Shipbuilding courses cover a wide range of subject models and teach every aspect of the art of model shipbuilding. With the addition of our separate product line of mini-practicums, other practicums and video practicums, any modeler can learn all of the techniques I've learned over the past 23 years.

Hi, I'm Bob Hunt, and with the help of my wife, Peggy, we are The Lauck Street Shipyard, a division of our business, LSS Enterprises LLC. When I first started building model ships, I was at a loss on the "how to" of the hobby. There were plenty of books of a historical nature but good books on how to build a specific model ship, particularly a model ship kit, did not exist. I struggled for years to build these wonderful models.

Sure, I made mistakes, I threw models away that I was not very proud of. But I persevered, and eventually it all began to come together. Thus was born the business my wife and I operate today.

We've got a great line of products availble at a most generous price. It has taken me the past 10 years to develop all of these products and they have helped hundreds, if not thousands of modelers become successful and better model ship builders. Please take some time to browse our website and see just what we have to offer.

Thanks for visiting,

Bob & Peggy Hunt
