This model of Noahs Ark was built in feet according to the dimensions given in the Bible (6:15-16).
The Scale of this Ark model is 1/96 (1/8=1’) which would make this model 56 1/4” long x 9 3/8” wide x 5 5/8” high. There is 4 different types of wood used on the model. The dark wood on the exterior of the model is walnut to represent the pitch (6:14) on the Ark inside and out. The deck planks are planked in spanish cedar, and the frame work is framed in pine and basswood. The front side of the model shows the finished look, and the back side shows the Ark under construction. This Ark has taken 4 weeks to build from scratch, the tools used were table saw, miter saw, sand paper, and glue.

Nice work. I guess it took Noah about 100 years to finish his because he didn’t have a generator to run his table or miter saw ;]
