The SCOTTISH MAID was one of the fastest sailing ships of her time, with large sail area and sleek lines. The schooner was built 1839 by Alexander Hall & Sons, Aberdeen, Scotland. The SCOTTISH MAID was one of the first ships with the so-called Aberdeen bow.
She sailed about 40 years until she ran aground in 1880 and was lost.
The ship model was built without sails to allow for a better view on the detailed rigging. Please take your time to have a good look at the set of photos. There are several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging. If you click on a photo you will get that photo in high resolution. Only these high resolution photographs show how much work and handicraft ability were put in the model.
Viewing the high resolution photos: If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer or Firefox, press F11 to minimize navigation bars and have a larger screen with the photos. The high resolution photos are about 12 megapixel. So they are about 10 - 20 times larger than your 0.5 - 1.3 megapixel computer screen. Most browsers by default downsize the pictures to screen size, so you cannot see all the details of the ship models. To see the original resolution move the mouse over the pictures and click on the magnifying lens.
