Noah's Ark Mailbox Plan

This is a simple scaled Noah's Ark mailbox plan. (120 A Scale)

I searched the web and did not find a scaled plan to make an Ark as a Visual Presentation of Creation that could be used also as a functional mailbox. So I made an ark mailbox for my front yard that is also an example for you to use.

The mailbox ark example can be a wonderful testimony to God's grace in your front yard proclaiming the gospel to those who are lost and in darkness.

The Ark represents salvation. It did to Noah and his family and it is an example for us. Our ark of salvation is Jesus. Trust in him before the flood comes which is death. If you wait to trust in Jesus as your Saviour, the flood waters of death may consume you and then it will be eternally to late! The 2nd Death   (Sermon Text)     The Eternity Of Hell's Torments   (Audio) (MP3)

The visual presentaion of the Ark near the your driveway entrance can be a visual testomony to the Grace of God toward Noah and his free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.  Modify the scale if you want to but make the Ark to scale. By doing so it becomes evident just how large Noah's Ark was that God told Noah to build and save his family from the worldwide flood.

Why is it so important to model the Ark at a realistic size?

Noah's Ark was the immense vessel that God told Noah to build in Genesis Chapter 6   North West Creation Network (

I also found another Ark model that is A Visual Presentation of Creation  ( 

Mr Lee Kroeger's example of a scale model of Noah's Ark gave me the incentive to make a scaled ark mailbox. Using the included scale conversion calculator makes it easy to calculate different scale sizes for an ark model.

Mr. Lee Kroeger suggests using a scale model of Noah's Ark as a visual tool teaching aid for church and school audiences .  Any home handyman could follow his directions and develop a vital message about creation to the multitudes who need to hear the truth . Make an Ark for vacation bible school, sunday school, your church your friends and your family etc. I especially encourage grandfathers to make one for the grandchildren.

(The Bible gives the dimensions, the number of floors, the mention of a window and a door. Now it's up to us to interpret the rest. Cages, walkways, food storage, ramps and railings. I would make it all to scale to keep the proportions for a more accurate presention.)




Z = 1:220 

N = 1:160 
TT = 1:120  HO = 1:87 (1:87.1) 
OO = 1:76 (1:76.2)  S = 1:64 
O = 1:48(1:43.5)  G = 1:32,1:29,1:22.5 
1/2 = 1:24  1" = 1/12 
A = 1:120   Use the A scale to make an Ark mailbox. (My scale)

How To Scale The Original Object Down

  • Enter the (Scale) for 1/120th scale enter a 120, or for 1/76th scale, enter a 76.
  • In the box labeled (Real Size) enter the measurement of a original object either in inches or centimeters.
  • Click the button labeled (inch) (inches) or (cm) (centimeters) to calculate.
  • The scaled down size of that object is displayed in the box (Scale Size).
  • To Recalculate your result click the (inch) or (cm) button.

EXAMPLE: For N scale (1:160), enter 160 in the 'Scale' box. If a real-sized building is 20 foot (240 inches) long you would enter 240 in the 'Real Size' box and click the nearby 'inch' button. To convert to 'Scale Size' click the next 'Inch' button to reveal the correct conversion to 1.5 inches. So, in N scale you would make your 20 foot long building 1.5 inches long.

Example: To make a scale model of Noah's Ark:  Enter 120 for the scale size. Enter 5420 in the Real Size box. This will give you a length of 45.16". The Ark was 450' long which equals 5420". Enter 120 for the scale size again. Enter 900 in the Real Size Box. This will give you a width of 7.5" wide. The Ark was 75' wide which equals 900". Enter 120 for the scale size again. Enter 540 in the Real Size box. This will give you a height of 4.5". The Ark was 45' in height which equals 540".

The window was 1 cubit or about 18". If you convert this to the above scale its less than 1/8 of a inch. This would not be something you would want to add to the ark because it would be too small to see. Instead get an 8' by 1" piece of cabinet trim. Cut it in half and add it to the top center of the Ark to represent and area for venting etc. (This part is speculation but the Ark must have had venting.)

I chose the scale of 120 because it would make an acceptable ark "mailbox". The mailbox door is about 4.5 " high and the width is 7.5 " which is big enough for letters and Acts & Facts Magazine (FREE), Answers Magazine and Creation Magazine. The length on the inside front only needs to be about one foot. So just add another small piece of wood on the inside of the Ark about 1' back from the door.

Also get some surface mount hinges for the Ark "mailbox" front door to open and close. Use maybe 2 3/4" by 2 1/8". Also get a knob of some kind for the front door of the Ark "Mailbox". Cut door height 4" to allow for top cut 1" overhang. Use woodfile to \ angle top of door and bottom of overhang for a snug fit when door is closed.

You can get these both at lowes or home depot cheap for less than 3 dollars.

I decided to use cedar boards from home depot. 3/4 " x 5 1/2" x 6' Western Red Cedar Fence Board $3.35 each  These are easy to cut and have a minimal tendency to warp or shrink. Also naturally protects against mildew, rot and decay. Easily accepts paint or stain, if desired over the timeless graying look of naturally aged cedar (typically a 2-3 year aging process)  Get a small box of 1 1/2 " galvanized rust-resistant nails.

You can make things almost any scale. You must know the original length, width and height and convert these to inches or centimeters to enter into the calculator. The original length of the ark was 450' long or 5420". The original width of the ark was 75' long or 900". The original height of the ark was 45' high or 540".

Its important to make the Ark to scale. By doing so it becomes evident just how large Noah's Ark was that God told Noah to build and save his family from the worldwide flood.

The Hebrew word used for the Ark of Noah (which only had to float, not travel like a ship) is tebah (תבה) meaning box-shaped or chest. It is not the Hebrew term used for boat or ship, e.g. ’onîah (אניה) in Proverbs 30:19, or tsî (צי) in Isaiah 33:21. Its Hebrew synonym is ’arôn (ארון), used for the Ark of the Covenant, another box-shaped item or chest, emphasizing the shape of Noah’s Ark.3 Both words are translated as kibōtos (κιβωτός) in the Greek of the Septuagint and the New Testament, showing they have an overlapping semantic range. And the NT never uses kibōtos for ship or boat.

Genesis 6:13-17

      6:13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

6:14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

6:15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

6:16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.

6:17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.
