Artesania Latina Tea Clipper Cutty Sark Model Kit
Brand: Artesania Latina
Model Number: 22800
The Artesania Latina Tea Clipper Cutty Sark wooden ship model accurately recreates the real life vessel with a high level of detail.
The Tea Clipper Ship Cutty Sark was built in 1869 at Dumbarton, Scotland. She was destined for the China tea trade, then an intensely competitive race across the globe from China to London. In the end, clippers lost out to steamships that could pass through the recently opened Suez Canal and deliver goods more reliably. Cutty Sark was then used for the Australian wool trade and sold in 1895 to a Portuguese company, returning to the UK in 1923. In 1954, Cutty Sark was restored and moved to a custom-built dry-dock and put on public display at Greenwich, London. The exceptional elegance and beauty of her line, allied to her incredible speed and wealth of details, have contributed to the unique legend of the Cutty Sark.
This wooden kit of Cutty Sark by Artesania Latina features single plank-on-bulkhead construction with pre-cut wooden parts. The hull is planked with individual mahogany strips, while lime wood 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, signalling 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. Six large sheets of plans and a 36 page book containing 120 colour photos of every phase of construction combine with English instructions to guide you through every step necessary to complete a stunning model.
