The customs schooner ALERT was used at the beginning of the 19th century
for the pursuit of smugglers at the US coast. For this reason she was
equipped with large sails and a wedge-shaped deep keel to be a fast
sailer close to the wind. The ALERT has been fitted with a rotating
carronade located on deck mid-ship.
Here are some high-resolution photos of the ship model with 100 - 160
view from starboard, the
carronade on midship deck, the
view on the stern and
view from starboard astern.
This ship model is 1 : 25 scale. Length is 88 cm, width 36 cm and height
70 cm. It was made by Mr. Rudolf Ferlemann, Muenster, Germany.
This model has been already sold. The pictures and the data are shown in
gallery of the ship models sold only to let enthusiasts and model

builds such a model by himself.
