a Model ship

Postby shimmy » Thu Apr 15, 2010 10:55 pm

My dad built/made this about 30 years ago.
I bought the ship as a model (wood)
then bought the accessories, the bells, brass parts etc.
He spent approx. 6 - 8 hrs everyday for 6 months.
after he told me never ever get him another one....lol
It is approx.42' long and 27" tall
the name on it the Cutty Sark


a closer look at the rigging etc

Thank You.

I would have destroyed this ship, if I had to do the rigging like my dad did. Way too much work to get involved with. lol

Wow, that's unbelievable! I bet most people get exhausted just thinking about the work involved.

Thanks Frank.

Take a good look at the rigging, no way would I be able to do that.
Way too tedious for me...
I'd have a ship with no rigging... :rofl2:

No prob, great detail on the pics! Even though they are too big and blow the margins ...

If those pics are not busting his thread margins, he must have his monitor settings set very high, over 1024 width for sure. Right click on your desktop, select Properties, the Settings.

The images in this thread are 1024 X 768, which is way too wide for typical forum postings. 600 wide instead of 1024 would be good, but you have not replaced the images in this thread. They are still 1024 wide.
