CUTTY SARK - WORLD RECORD HOLDER 1885
INCLUDES COPPER SHEATHING
CUTTY SARK In 1885, the Cutty Sark sailed from Sydney Australia to London in 73 days, setting a record and beating her old rival, the Thermopylae, in the process. She hoisted 32,000 square feet of sail and had a top speed of 17-1/2 knots.
Mantua's kit is designed from the original plans of the Cutty Sark, now restored and on display in Greenwich, England. Construction is double plank-on-bulkhead using limewood inner and walnut outer planking. All wooden parts are laser cut to facilitate assembly. Authentically detailed gilded metal ornaments grace her bow and stern. Solid brass yard collars and supports encircle the vessel, and individual copper plates cover the hull. Other fittings are copper, brass, cast metal and pre-finished hardwoods. Eight giant sheets of plans and an instruction booklet assure you of an accurate model.
The paint sets for these kits are historically accurate colors that have been specially formulated for model ships. They are high quality acrylic based paints that can be thinned with water, thinner or alcohol. They clean up easily with water, making them ideal for airbrush use. Brushed or sprayed, paints dry flat with good grain structure and a smooth finish. The colors contained in each paint set are based on the colors shown in the picture of the model. 1 oz. bottles
