BaD Customer-Built Model

Straight from North Carolina, James Gee has built an R/C version of his favorite Tin Can, the USS Lloyd Thomas, (DD-764) from BaD. Now retired, he was a former INSURV inspector for Pac Fleet, which is probably why every detail on this ship is perfect, and in triplicate!

Welcome to BaD Ship Models!


May 18th, 2015 - We are offering 10% all model kits through the Memorial day weekend! Please send us an email and we'll send you the link to order the model you would like at a discount.

May, 2015 - BaD Ship Models has changed owners and moved once again. The new owners, Joe Wort and Rebecca Bell-Wort, have both enjoyed building models and creating with wood for over 50 years combined. Previous BaD Ship Models owners have brought the balsa wood plank-on-frame model kit company a long way from its beginning starting with Lou "Woody" Durso. Woody started the company with four kits in the Knox, Brooks, Garcia and Glover Class Frigates. He expanded the world-renown company up to 32 different classes of warships, landing craft, and submarines of inexpensive model kits before needing to pass the company on to another avid scale model builder.


Serving experienced model builders since 1990, BaD Ship Models manufactures 1/96th scale wood plank-on-frame warship model kits for static or R/C (Remote Control).

Joe and Rebecca will be working to improve the model kits. They would like to bring the same quality that past BaD Ship Model customers have come to enjoy as well as help those who are new to the BaD Ship Model kits and are looking for a good start for their own creations. The current prices that are listed are from the previous owners and will be reviewed as we reassess each kit.

All of our Kits are handcrafted so, please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. We just can't do it any faster, really... once you see the kit, you'll know why. This is a TON of stuff to hand pick and cram in a box... but everything will be there to make your project a reality.

Remember that these kits are the start of your own unique model and are based on the original commission ship from each class. Please contact us in order to make sure you have EXACTLY what you want/need for your build - we would much rather make sure you are happy before we ship anything, so feel free to call or email before placing your order... Thanks!
