International Model Makers


The business was started by Norman Hill in the seventies and developed for over 30 years untilĀ 2004, when Kevin Godfrey took over. Kevin had 20 years experience in the industry having previously started a model making business of his own ‘Godfrey Design’ supplying the toy industry with pre-production prototypes.


Scale Models Weston has been making high quality models for the shipping industry for over 40 years.


Scale Models Weston grew over the following 13 years and the business has almost tripled in size. Not only does it supply many international companies with high quality marine models, it now also creates detailed architectural models. Our products can be found in many different places; from offshore supply companies and shipyards to embassies and even world leaders.

Our Team


Our team of model makers, craftsmen, technicians, and CAD specialists all have a passion for what they do. Combining our unique individual skills allows us to perfect every model that we create. Many of the team members have been with the company from almost the start of the business. Alongside them we have several relatively new members of staff that have helped expand the business, encouraging new ideas and production techniques to ensure we remain competitive and relevant.


The models we create are used in many different industries as Marketing tools or Luxury items. Much of our work comes to us from either recommendations or through direct client contact. The structural integrity of our models and the care taken to assemble them, makes them highly durable. Our name is on all the models we build as a mark of quality.
