The tea clipper Cutty Sark


The Cutty Sark was launched in Dumbarton, Scotland, in 1869. In tea trade until 1890, she took part in the tea clipper races from China to London. The races made her famous and gave her a legendary reputation. Later on the ship was used for general trade and wool transport. Cutty Sark won all of the wool races she took part in and set several speed records. After many years as a stationary training ship she was moved in 1954 to a purpose-built dry-dock in Greenwich and preserved as a museum ship.
 
In May 2007, during repair works, the ship caught fire and was considerably damaged. However, after reviewing the damage and successfully raising funds it was decided to restore the ship completely. In 2012 she was opened to the public again.
 
In Wikipedia there is a detailed account on the Cutty Sark. The restoration work and how to visit her is shown on the webpage of the Cutty Sark Trust and the Royal Museums Greenwich.

I took many photographs of the ship on a visit in April 2014.

  

The Cutty Sark model, photos, description and dimensions
 

The ship model was built with sails that exquisitely show the wind blowing. The elegance of the fine hull is well presented.

There are more pictures, several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging. Click images to enlarge!

This model of the Cutty Sark is a beautiful, fine piece of work.
The ship model is 1 : 78 scale. Length is 116 cm, width 37 cm, height 80 cm.

The model is not fixed to the stand and can be taken out, i.e. for transport.

 

This model has already been sold. The pictures and the data are shown in the gallery of the ship models sold only to let enthusiasts and model makers enjoy the photos and maybe get ideas or some guidance, if someone builds such a model by himself.
