Hi, I'm Bob Hunt, and with the help of my wife, Peggy, we are The Lauck Street Shipyard, a division of our business, LSS Enterprises LLC. When I first started building model ships, I was at a loss on the "how to" of the hobby. There were plenty of books of a historical nature but good books on how to build a specific model ship, particularly a model ship kit, did not exist. I struggled for years to build these wonderful models.
Sure, I made mistakes, I threw models away that I was not very proud of. But I persevered, and eventually it all began to come together. Thus was born the business my wife and I operate today.
We've got a great line of products availble at a most generous price. It has taken me the past 9 years to develop all of these products and they have helped hundreds, if not thousands of modelers become successful and better model ship builders. Please take some time to browse our website and see just what we have to offer.
