Cutty Sark Model Ship Kit  

This is an Expert Kit  

Original specifications:- (ex-Maria di Amparo, Ferreira, Cutty Sark), Clipper (3m), L/B/D 64.8m * 11m * 6.4m, Hull: Composite, Complement: 19-28, Designer: Hercules Linton, Built: Scott, Linton & Co., Dumbarton, Scotland; 1869.

Among the most famous old sailing ships still extant, Cutty Sark was one of the last clippers built for the China tea trade. Ordered by Captain John Willis of London, her hull was of composite construction, with teak planking on iron frames. Cutty Sarks name is short Scottish for short shirt and comes from the Robert Burns poem Tam OShanter. The reason for his choice of name is not known. New wood kit Cutty Sark by Artesania Latina features single plank-on-bulkhead construction with pre-cut wooden parts.  

You will plank the hull with individual mahogany strips, while limewood planking covers the deckhouse and decks. Fine African walnut is used for keel, stem, waterways, coamings, hatch covers, door frames, masts and yards.   Hardwood fittings include deadeyes, blocks and cleats. Brass is plentiful in the form of stanchions, rings, belaying pins, eyebolts, navigation lights and housings, rudder hinges, chain, bell, chimney and mastheads.   Anchors, bitts, boats, boat frames, davits, signaling cannon, life rings, figurehead, trusses, hoops and other parts are cast metal. Rigging line is supplied in a variety of sizes, and cloth flag and pennants add realistic detail.

Text: Hi all,

This is to let you know that "my ship" has arrived today.

A day earlier than the tracking info would indicate, all in good order and no apparent damage.

You now have a very happy customer on the other side of the globe..."down under"!

Although I am not yet allowed to get my hands on the goodies inside (Birthday present), I am impressed with the quality of materials on a first superficial inspection. I think,

Let me say to all of you "a hearty thank you" for your advice and communication during the purchasing phase.

Best Regards,
