Alain Bertrand travaillant sur un modèle d'arsenal
Alain BERTRAND, model maker

Fascinated by our maritime history of war and merchant ships of the XVIIIth century, I have been making ships for more than forty years, and for the last ten years or so, models in framework. I have specialised in 1/36th scale, with the possibility of making larger scale models (1/24th…).

I also propose the assembly of high quality kit boats (e.g. ZHL MODEL) in 1/75 and 1/48… in an « improved » version, where I bring all my skills to add realism and authenticity to these models.

What customers say about it

T. Weisshaupt

for the buying of the Bonhomme Richard 1779 on the

Many thanks for the very easy contact and the extraordinary helpfulness of Mr. Bertrand.

The model of the Bonhomme Richard is a true masterpiece and I am very happy to be able to mine with this piece of history to enrich my living spaces.

Mr. Bertrand and his family were extremely helpful in loading the model and the transport box specially made by him secured the way to Germany and onward transport to Italy without complications.

Model architecture at its finest!

Sincerely,
T. Weisshaupt
