San Marcos, Calif. based SD Model Makers delivered their eighth scale model ship to Tampa, Fla. based Riverhawk Fast Sea Frames. The 1/36 scale, 24.05-inch model is a replica of Riverhawk’s SeaStriker 22 very high speed fast patrol and interdiction craft. The model replicates the actual SeaStriker that will launch in Tampa in May and be on display at the Special Operations Forces International Convention (SOFIC) beginning May 22 in Tampa.

Riverhawk’s SeaStriker model represents one of eight highly detailed replicas of different RiverHawk vessels that SD Model Makers has modeled for the Tampa shipbuilder. The SeaStriker model displays examples of several armament and defense packages, and includes a stern ramp with an FC470 combat rubber raiding craft embarked. Details also display the SeaStriker’s state-of-art shock-mitigating seating for mission personnel and crew.

RADM Jake Shuford, (USN-ret) RiverHawk’s Director of Development and Fleet Integration, praised the utility and quality of the SD Model Makers work:  “Using scale replica ship models for industry exhibits and customer engagement provides an opportunity to highlight the diversity of our product lines when we can’t actually bring the customer to the Shipyard. We have relied on SD Model Makers since we modeled the very first RiverHawk hull over two years ago: they have always delivered superior quality workmanship with the highest professionalism and attention to detail.”

SD Model Makers owner, Captain Brad Poulos, said, “We specialize in making museum quality ship models for ship builders, boat yards and vessel owners. We work closely with our customers to produce incredibly detailed and exact replica scale ship models of all types of naval and military support vessels –command and security boats, naval warships, OSVs and all types of commercial vessels - even offshore oil platforms. Providing maritime ship models in virtually any size or scale is the core competency of our business.”
