Beeman911 Posted February 8, 2015 Share #1 Posted February 8, 2015 Hello, Last year I started to rehab a solid hulled ship I was given by my great Aunt. I believe it has been in my family going back 3-6 generations to when those grandfathers were sailors. This model was in pieces when I got it, with some rigging saved. The Hull itself about 24 inches long. I don't know if it was handbuilt or was a kit way back. With the exception of the 3 largest mast pieces and 2 smaller mast pieces replaced with wood, remaining mast pieces appear to be made from Whales Teeth. When I machined remaining pieces it smelled like a Dentists office!! I was hoping someone might be able to identify which ship this model might be modeled after. I do know my ancesters spent their time on the east coast, including Marthas Vineyard, New Bedford, and Rockland, Me. To rookie me, this model seems very similar to models of the Sovereign of the Seas and The Red Jacket. It would be easier for me if I had a Ship to copy, and it would make sense that whichever ancestor built this model used their own Ship as a model. I do understand at least one of my ancestors was Master of a ship that sailed to tjhe Orient. Thanx, Dean Hillman Attached Thumbnails Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
