The barque Scarborough of 1782

In her first years the barque was used for timber transport from America and the Baltic. In 1787 she was refitted for convict transportation to Australia and participated in the so called "First Fleet".

The first transport from May 1787 to January 1778 to Port Jackson, Australia, was with 208 convicts and 35 crew. On the way back to England she took a tea cargo from China. On a second convict transport in 1790 more than a quarter of the convicts died on the voyage.

The next decade she was used in cargo transport to the Baltic and the Caribbean. In April 1805 she was lost off Jamaica after leaking heavily.

Her colourful history is well documented in a Wikipedia article on Scarborough.


The Scarborough model, photos, description and dimensions

The model was built by a very experienced model maker. 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 barque Scarborough is a beautiful pleasant piece of work, a true masterpiece. The ship model was built with sails like wind abaft the beam on starboard tack, all sails set. The sails, deck, equipment and hull are expertly presented.
The ship model is 1 : 67 scale. Length is 72 cm, width 26 cm, height 65 cm.

There is a display case for the model made of birch wood and (rather poor, high reflection) acrylic glass which may be used as protection when picking up the model with your car. The display case will not be shipped on air cargo. The case is 81 cm long, 33 cm wide, 67 cm high.

The model looks best when set without a display case.


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.
