In 1975 I started building the Model Shipways Flying Fish (solid wood hull) When I was at the point of rigging the shrouds, the cat tore up the forestays tree tops and masts. Discouraged the model went into the attic. About 8 months ago. I was cleaning the attic and decided to restart the project. Heavy dust was removed and all the broken pieces were fixed or replaced. Now I’m rigging the yard braces and spencer gaffs. Not bad for a 40+ year project.
Although a scale model would sell well, to my knowledge, there isn’t a scale model of the Mary Celeste. The reason is the original plans of the ship have long been lost which makes a detailed model impossible. I believe the model “Marie Celeste” is only a guess of what she looks like based on pictures and general specifications.
