James Craig by blueyAU -Finished

Recommended Posts

I started to build the James Craig about 3 years ago and lost interest, so packed it away and forgot all about it. That is until I discovered it in a big cardboard box in my shed. So out it came and back into building it. The model is a BIG one 2 metres in length.  I plated the hull with sheets of copper to make it look like a steel plated hull, each strip was made to look as if it was riveted.

James Craig was built in Sunderland England 1874. By the name of Clan Macleod. as a 3 masted steel hulled Barque.

In 1900 was renamed the James Craig.
