USS Constitution:  Status - no longer extant. She was anchored in deep water on the mantlepiece when she foundered in a gale of cleaning.

Cutty Sark:              Status - no longer extant. Snagged in the tentacles of the kraken and dragged down to Davy Jones locker off the continental shelf.

Amerigo Vespucci: Status - given as a gift

Soleil Royal:             Status - current build.

1 - Revell Constitution that passed away from my ex-wife waving a towel at the smoke detector.    1/2 way through the model, I discovered wood model kits and loved the idea of working with material similar to the real thing.  Forced my way to finishing the constitution, been building wood ever since.   However, I do have a few steel hull kits, working on the 1/350 Mogami.

I've built many of 'em: 1/96 Cutty Sark (now a dis-masted hulk), Thermopylae, Constitution; Heller Soleil Royal (unfinished), Le Chebec

(nearly finished), Thornier Armor; Imai Catalan ship and Santa Maria, small Revell Constitution, Bounty, Golden Hinde, and Chas. W. Morgan

plus many steel-hulled ships, submarines, and work-type ships. I have to say that I enjoy working with that medium as much as working with

wood models...just love the look of ships, always have.

I am currently building the Revell 1/96 (really 1/64) Spanish Galleon, with a lot of modifications.  I built a few model sailing ships and aircraft carriers and battleships when I was a child and teenager — I kept two of them:  Revell Cutty Sark and USS Constitution (neither one of them was the larger 1/96 scale).

I made the tiny Airfix Shannon, Golden Hind, Victory, and once the big Airfix Victory and the Revell Victory. Plus even tinier Airfix models of the Graf Spee, Exeter, Achilles and Ajax from the battle of the River Plate.

 

All gone the way of all flesh . . .
