JerseyCity Frankie posted a topic in Ships plans and Project Research. General research on specific vessels and ship types..These are photos of an old model that has been in an attic for many years. I'm told the model was purchased in Germany in the 1920's! I do not know the history of the black and white photo but it is associated with this damaged model and is likely a promotional shot? I'm going on the assumption that its a photo of the same subject if not the same model, but maybe its just a random model photo? Both the photo and the model have an American flag. My first pass at making an identification is that the ship depicted is American and dates from the 1840's. I'm about to get into some more biblio searching and see what I can come up with. Wouldn't it be nice to have a clear photo of the bow or stern and be able to simply read off the ships name? Any insights anyone here on Model Ship World can offer will be appreciated!

Hello_World posted a topic in Ships plans and Project Research. General research on specific vessels and ship types..Hey, I just got hands on a model vessel. It's a Clipper from the 19th. century. Can you help me to find out which model it is exactly? I maybe want to sell it..what is it what it is worth by guess? Thank you for help!!
Total newb here, waiting for my backordered model to arrive. While going through the standard qual program, will be pestering y'all with lots of questions, hope y'all don't mind. Reasons... While I've always been in awe of well done wooden ship models I've never thought about trying my skills with that, until my wife brought out her inherited model from her dad that needs a lot of refurbishment and total rerigging and she wants me to do that. Of course it's a clipper.... So I'm going to try to get my skill level up to tackle that big job, the model is well over 42" long. Anywho, thank you all for letting me join, truly. Tom
