  1. Many of you may have already seen this, but when I posted a question to the Science Museum (using the contact details provided on their website) about viewing models of 18th Century cutters and about what had happened to the old Shipping Gallery, they pointed me to a digitally captured video of the entire display. You can see it at http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/about_us/history/shipping.aspx. I found this brilliant but also very saddening, since there is now no way in which you can easily see all those models in one place. However, the Science Museum were enormously helpful. They gave me a list of every model of a cutter in their possession, and pointers to where each model could be found. These models are scattered over the country, but a fair number are still at the Science Museum and it only takes an email to them to request a visit to see whatever you want. Tony
  2. Not only is this unimaginably skilled work, as well as beautiful, it is also wonderfully photographed against a great backdrop that gives a sense of the majesty of the original. Thank you very much indeed for posting these images. Antonin
