HobbyLinc.com and Revell.com both sell a wide variety of plastic ship models as of 2015. These models include old sailing ships, modern warships, passenger vessels, cargo vessels and submarines. The ships these and other retailers sell usually require construction, painting and detailing since they are come as kits instead of fully assembled ships.
Revell.com is an extension of the physical Revell model catalog, which features model kits, radio-controlled toys, science kits and other similar toys and learning devices. Because of this, the Revell.com online catalog is not as robust as other retailers and functions primarily as a way to view pictures, descriptions and model numbers for the goods that it sells. There is a small store where customers can purchase plastic model ships online from the United States, but the larger online Revell store is available mainly for German customers.
HobbyLinc.com features not only over 1,000 plastic model ship kits for sale but a wide variety of other hobby toys, crafts and learning devices as well. HobbyLinc.com is primarily an online store, and the main plastic model ships page on its website gives a complete layout of the ships available by type and manufacturer. The front page of HobbyLinc.com heavily advertises discounts for different plastic model ships as well.
