Master Modeler Ernest Buechel has won national awards for his work and
many of his ship models are in private collections throughout the USA.
Some of these ships may take 6 months to a year to build and the weight
of a single model can be 60 lb. or more. Currently, Advanced Recovery is
one of the largest privately owned collectors of these ships in the USA.
