In the early 50s Danish architect and former wartime RAF pilot Ejnar Billing exhibited a self-made model of a fishing boat in the window hobby store belonging to his wife. After the photo of the model appeared in a magazine, Mr. Billing overwhelmed in order to position dozens of pieces of the same model. Because it was not in his power so much to handle, it occurred to him that the boat will offer a kit - the first mass-produced kit with wooden frames with the keel, ribs and planking hull design mimicking the most real ship. This method of construction is quickly befriended by Mr billing models and began to conquer the world. In 1958, then founded the company bearing the family name still Billing Boats.
