About Us ~ Our History

Harry Shaw started Harry Shaw Model Makers in 1952 in a small room in the basement of his home. His first project was the model of a radio table for a leader in the electronics industry.

From that point, the company grew rapidly and expanded a number of times to accommodate more people and resources to serve a growing and diverse client base. Harry Shaw Model Makers established themselves to be one of the most well known and respected model/prototype makers in a highly competitive and ever changing industry.

The key to success for Harry Shaw Model Makers always has been the people within the company. People who care about quality and combined the latest technology with the highest levels of craftsmanship to shape ideas into reality. People with the passion and expertise to take a project from inception to finished product and do it on time and on budget… thus helping our clients meet their objectives and bring their products to market.

Harry Shaw said it best over 30 years ago and this statement is still the foundation for how each and every client and project is engaged:

“Each project receives our best efforts and is treated with strict confidence, whether it is for commerce, or national defense. We welcome the opportunity to help bring dimensions to your ideas…”



John Kerby and Bill Jackman have been the force behind the continued growth of the company and serve as the owners and visionaries since 1986. Under their leadership the company has continued to move forward from a very rich past and into a very bright and exciting future.

Harry Shaw Model Maker continues to be an innovator in prototype building and provides our clients with models and prototypes using whatever methods and technology are best suited for the project and guarantees the highest quality standards and exceptional service we have become known for.

We have proven you really can have the best of both worlds… the speed and benefits of state-of-the-art technology combined with quality craftsmanship and outstanding results.
