The gray waters of a stormy sea bash against the wooden hull of a ship. The sky above is black and thick with many clouds. Occasionally, the rumble of thunder and bright streaks of white lightning will cut across the sky. Ocean storms are renowned for starting up without warning and with great ferocity. The storm can die down at any moment, or become even more dangerous. This fickle nature is what downs so many ships. Rather optimistically, the ship moves continually forward. The crew mans the sails and the navigator pours over maps in order to chart a safer course.

Many a tall ships model is crafted in equally sturdy and flexible wood. Those who make these items and those who collect them often prefer wood as the material of choice. Wood allows for these models to be built very tall, thanks to its even grain. Thanks to the very similar properties of plastic to wood, a tall ships model is often made from plastic as well. Plastic is also highly resistant to water.
The hue of the ship depends on what it's made of – white for plastic and golden grain for the wood versions. Though mold is a threat to many wood models, artisans rub them with different treatments to make them more resistant. When placed within a home space, the tall ships model does best as a display item in a larger part of the house. A room such as a play room or an office are often the best. When a model is a schooner type, the large, old fashioned masts may get in the way of many other activities in the room. Rooms that have little activity in them are considered optimal for this model.
