Custom built ship


Recommended Posts

The only Wynaud I can find is the 1854 tea clipper.  Is that the one?  It might be a tough project as there doesn't appear to be any pans of her.  Only a couple of pictures/illustrations.  She also underwent some renovations as to rig and it would appear deck structures... so a point in time would be helpful to anyone wanting to build it.


Good luck.  Hopefully, someone can point you in the right direction as far as building this ship.

Mabe this is close enough to what you want. Most tea clippers were built with the same lines and the hull shape would be simular.


This is a nice kit that would require a little skill to build.

The rigging on this type of ship would be quite a challenge to a beginner.

Mabe you could pick one up ready made on the dreaded EBay.

lots of the cuttysark on EBay with a little modification it could be turned into the Wynaud.

I wanted to make a model of the ship my ancestors came to America from Germany on.  I knew the ship name (Pleasant) and the captains name and even have the signed manifest with my ancestors signature....but could find what exactly the ship looked like.  So I knew they came over in 1732 so I looked for ships that transported immigrants in that time period.  Turned out the Endeavour was exactly what I was looking for so I built the Endeavour and call it the Pleasant.


There is no one alive that can dispute my choice ;o)   And my family members all love it.  She flies the Family Crest and that is all they care about.
