Model Gallery

Wasen Mokei / Wasen Modeler gives me an opportunity to share information about modeling traditional Japanese boats. But, I also want to be able to build some community. To that end, I want to give other model builders a chance to have their work seen. So, I’m setting up this gallery to share the works of all wasen modelers, regardless of experience, knowledge, or whatever.

So, if you’ve built a model of a traditional Japanese boat, whether kit or scratch, and have some photos to share, please contact me here.
