Firgure Head Cutty Sark

Recommended Posts

Here is a photo of the figure head of the Cutty Sark taken in 1922.  I posted this on another thread and was told this is not the Cutty Sark figure head but did look like it.  I felt that had I did more research, I would have known in truth what the figure head was.  I had been led to believe it was just as I posted and was shared.  There then followed a little debate about the Nanny Witch, a Poem and the posted figure was another ships figure head!  Well, I purchased a book recently from eBay, The Log Of The Cutty Sark, by Basil Lubbock.  A really good read for those interested in the history of this gloriously well know Composite Built Clipper Ship.  And low and behold, what is one of the photo plates in the book...….you guessed it!  If you are building a Cutty, I strongly suggest you get a copy, you will not be sorry and it is not over priced as every other ship book is these days.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
