Marine Models “Cutty Sark”
December 1, 2014 in Ships
I know that I haven’t been on here a long time. So I just got back from Thanksgiving holiday with this beauty (and a couple extra pounds:) that my uncle had had in his attic for a long time and had never decided to build it. The kit is a 1958 model of the Cutty Sark and it is all wood and cast metal pieces. The sails were supposed to be tissue paper, but that has long since degraded. The fun part is that the instructions are big blueprints of the ship that were originally hand drawn. It is really going to be a challenge and my uncle told me to take my time and decided what I want to do with the model, if I want to build it or sell it and get another model. I hope you guys can give me some insight!
