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.

We are pleased to offer a series of kits Billing Boats from which you can build sophisticated exquisite detail leafing models and create a stylish complement your interior with salty smell of the sea and the call of faraway places ...
