We are often asked ‘Are you JoTiKa or Caldercraft?’,
the simple answer is both. Caldercraft is the company name under which we
manufacture our own products while JoTiKa is the parent distribution company
through which Caldercraft and many other manufacturers’ products are
Formed in 1988, JoTiKa is a small, family owned and operated business now based
in Scruton, North Yorkshire, UK and was originally set up in order to manufacture,
under licence, and distribute products throughout Europe from Aeromarine
Manufacturing and distribution rights for Caldercraft were added in 1992 with
one simple company goal: not just to produce model ship kits but to produce
actual scale replica ship kits, paying attention to quality, fine detailing
and overall authenticity to the chosen subject. It is this underlying principle
that catapulted Caldercraft to market leader status and, thanks to continual
development and investment, remains the benchmark for the competition. Development
and manufacturing using the latest CAD/CAM and rapid prototyping technologies
ensures accuracy of all of the kit contents from metal castings to CNC routed
and profiled wooden components, from metal extrusions to brass etched fittings.
Manufacturing and distributing a range of over 100 model ship subjects ranging
from the static Men of War to steam yachts and from World War II submarines
to 80mph power boats, coupled with literally thousands of fittings and accessories
allows JoTiKa to cater for the many and varied tastes of marine modelling
enthusiasts around the globe.
Nelsons Navy, a new kit range by Caldercraft portraying ships from Nelsons
period, was released in late 1999 with great success. Along side this a Heritage
Series range has been introduced, the first release being 'Mary
Rose'. All Nelsons Navy and Heritage Series kits are static models.
In 1999 the manufacturing rights to Aerokits was also acquired and
the 46" Sea Queen is now available and
the 34" Sea Commander is currently in development!
We also produce a large range of accessories and these will be added to our
web pages continually. To buy from us online, please go to ShipWrightShop
In addition to its own manufacturing, JoTiKa also distributes products
from Krick, Raboesch and Aero-naut among others.
