Billings Models Cutty Sark Wooden Ship Kit
Brand: Billings Models
Model Number: B564
The Billings Cutty Sark wooden ship model is an accurate recreation of the real life tea clipper launched in 1869.
The most famous of all tea clippers, the Cutty Sark is today preserved for posterity at a dry dock in Greenwich. Built to transport tea from China, she was designed by Hercules Linton, whose ambition it was to outstrip the Thermopylae, the fastest ship of the times. When she was built, she had a length of 85m, width of 11m and displacement of 2,133 tons.
This kit features plank on frame construction, laser cut plywood keel and frame components, wooden superstructure and decks, hull and deck fittings in wood, brass and/or plastic, mast and spars, rigging cord in various sizes and printed sails. It also includes full-size plan sheets and an instruction manual with English text. This wooden boat kit is recommended for the expert modeller.
When complete, this model measures 110cm long, 67cm high and 15cm wide.

Cutty Sark Billings 564 Kit
Couple of early disappointments. Firstly, I was very disappointed to find that the deck part no's. 16, 17 & 47 were not marked out as planking. Had to mark out myself with permanent marker pens. Secondly, again was very disappointed to find that the dimensions of the frames 0 - 10 and ten and a half, were incorrect. Table of contents shows dimensions as 5mm x-veneer, whereas they were in fact 4mm. This threw out all the measurements shown in Fig.1

Bought kit to tax me during the winter months. Kit arrived quickly and I've progressed far enough to feel sure it will meet my requirements.
