LLOYD McCAFFERY has devoted his life to the creation of the most detailed and exquisite works at small scales that is possible for the human mind to imagine. Trained as an artist and sculptor, his works in the ship model field have long been collected by serious connoisseurs of the genre, and set the standard for other modelers. His ever-expanding range of subjects include miniature dinosaur skeletons, carousel horses, stagecoaches, and ships' figurehead sculptures.
The woods used are smooth, hard, fine-grained fruitwoods. The tools include air turbine dental engines, jeweler's tweezers, and a number of miniature versions of planes, chisels, and knives custom made to give exacting results.

Lloyd's work has been featured in several publications, among them WoodenBoat, Miniature Collector, Yankee, Wildlife Art News, Sea History, Wildfowl Carving and Collecting, In Marin, Fine Woodworking, Connoisseur, and Showboats International. He has written articles for Model Shipwright and the Nautical Research Journal. His book, “Ships in Miniature”, was published in 1988 by Conway Maritime Press of London.

Continuing in the maritime tradition of his ancestors who were famous American shipbuilders since 1734, Greg McKay builds his museum-quality ship models in the time-proven, old-fashioned style of solid wood hulls with metal details. Mr. McKay built his first ship model at age 6 while growing up in Santa Fe, NM. When he was 11, he won First Place in a national model contest. He later studied art under the direction of Joseph Bakos, one of the original Cinco Pintores of Santa Fe and Taos.

After years of research, experimentation and dedicated study of the chemistry and durability of model building materials, Mr. McKay became convinced that there is no substitute for hardwood and non-ferrous metal in the art of producing museum-quality models. He also developed a unique technique for casting display models in resin and in porcelain - these models were based on hand-carved masters. His hand-painted porcelain models are made by the firm that produces Hummel figurines and the Franklin Mint.
