Assembled Admiral's Line Cutty Sark

Assembled Admiral's Line Cutty Sark

The Cutty Sark was builtin Dumbarton, Scotland, in 1869 and was engaged in the China tea trade until 1873. She then embarked upon twenty years of passages between England and Australia. After 1895 she served under the Portuguese flag for the next twenty-five years. The Cutty Sark now belongs to the Thames Nautical Training College and she stands dry-docked at Greenwich in London. The Cutty Sark was made the most famous Clipper Ship of all time by The Seagrams company, who would name a popular spirit after her and use the ships portrait on the bottles label.

These ships are 100% scratch built, put together piece by piece, similar to an actual ship. There are no model kits used here. The wood is cut from trees. All ships are Plank on Frame construction (hollow hulls). Ribs on the inside, piece by piece form the hull and deck. If you look closely, you can see the nails used to secure the strips of wood to the internal ribs. Some Admiral's line ships utilize double plank on frame construction. Wood is cut piece by piece and put over the base of the ship's hull to the water line. It's a lot of work and a fantastic look. The lines on the ships are working lines. They can be tightened and loosened. The Admiral's line ship's sails can be furled or unfurled by tracing each working line, though this is not recommended unless you are an avid model builder. Appreciate the rigging, the stitching on the sails, and the fantastic craftsmanship. Each ship comes with a solid wooden stand and a brass nameplate. Every ship comes with her history printed on antiqued paper along with a stand to display beside the ship. The ships are imported from all over the world from master craftsman who specialize in model boat building.
