Many model fans, or those just entering the modeling market, want to display models like these, but are unable to do so because of the time and skill it takes to build one, or the cost of buying a pre-assembled one.

Display the only remaining original “Clipper Ship” from the 1800s designed by Hercules Linton right in your own home or office! The Cutty Sark, built in 1869 at Dumbarton, Scotland, is available as a FULLY ASSEMBLED model. Master craftsmen using historical photographs, drawings or original plans meticulously handcraft these highly detailed wood models from scratch. They are built to scale with high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany. They are 100% hand built individually using plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to the building of actual ships. Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. The Cutty Sark model features plank on frame, two decks, and one row of metal portholes on each side of the ship. The front bowsprit and three large masts are connected securely using advanced rigging and lines painstakingly knotted and fastened by hand. Each yard has an attached hand-stitched rolled-up sails made of fine linen. Metal anchors and a wooden rudder are visible on the front and rear of the ship. On the deck, there are authentic hand-built lifeboats with ribs and planks, metal steering wheels, wood ladders and windlass, captain’s dining and sleeping cabin, and many other handcrafted ornaments. This model comes standard with a solid wood base and brass nameplate. It’ll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast or passionate collector.
