September 2nd 2020
Dear collectors,
we've consultated the public authorities and unless the situation changes we can hold the collectors' meeting in the Danish Seaman's Church in Hamburg on September 19th. There are a few restrictions/rules. You have to wear a mask and keep a distance of 1,5m at all times. There will also be an address list, every visitor has to sign in. All data will be destroyed after 4-6 weeks. In the past we had the occasional foreign visitor, but this year we're expecting the event to be a bit smaller and a bit more local. Looking forward to see you all again in Kassel in 2021 though. Should you happen to be in Hamburg at the time you can find more information here in the Müncher Rundbrief. Best wishes & stay safe
Oliver

The latest 350 models

What is Sammelhafen?

Sammelhafen is a Database of model ships in the scale of 1:1250 und 1:1200. The earliest models listed are almost 100 years old. And the hobby is thriving to this day. It is a truly fascinating hobby!
As of december 2019 we have more than 26.500 entries on models and almost 19.000 pictures. Almost 12.000 entries feature at least one picture for easy identification.

If you did not know the big blue 'latest pictures' thing is a link to this site where you can always find the latest added pictures in chronological order.

Even after four years the site is still far from finished. And while we've quenched a lot of errors so far I'd still expect expect a few more here and there. If you happen to come across one, please use the 'report error' function you can find in the details section of an entry just above the big picture. You're helping a lot if you do.

For suggestions and criticism or if you simply want to reach out to me: oliver@sammelhafen.de
Please note that I'm notoriously bad at writing mails and also happen to work on the website a lot in a short amount of time before going back to my other duties. So I tend to pile up my ToDo and E-Mail folder for Sammelhafen and usually get to answer my mails shortly after an update. This is especially true for sendings of errors, lists, news or pictures that don't require an immediate answer.

On this page you'll find an overview of every series and manufacturer who is currently in our database. If you want to narrow down your search by using a more precise tool, please try our search function. The link is in the top navigation. Marked in green are those who are still active. Note that some only produce new models while others recast their older creations.
