Michael -


Thank you for posting the link to a very detailed old photo of a ship's copper bottom.  I am currently building the Model Shipways SYREN and will soon be at the coppering stage.  The photo will be a help to me in putting the copper plates on correctly.



current build: SYREN

nearly done:  Fair American, Benjamin W. Latham

future builds:  Emma C. Berry

completed builds:  Rattlesnake, Newsboy, Sultana
