The copper plating achieved on this ship model is immaculate. The upper part of the hull is lacquer painted black for a striking finish.

The decks are of teak wood and treated with varnish to bring out the value of the wood. The deck details on this model are miniature replicas of the real Cutty Sark. If you have visited the Cutty Sark you will know how accurate the deck details are. The cannons for this model are individually turned from brass rods and mounted onto handmade wooden supports. The ship's figurehead is metallic as seen on the Cutty Sark in Greenwich. The masts used on this ship model are made out of solid wood and painted white as in real life. All mast tops and tessle trees are painted black and are also built according to plans. Several thicknesses of rigging are used.

History of the Cutty Sark

During the mid 1800’s the Tea Clippers used to race from China back to the UK, with the new season's crop. The Cutty Sark was built for this purpose by Scott and Lindon and launched on 22nd November 1869, at Dumbarton, Scotland. The Cutty Sark made her maiden voyage in January 1870. Between 1870-1877 she carried mainly tea, but was never able to win the tea race. Her most successful year should have been in 1872 when she was leading her great rival, the Thermopylae by 400 miles, but disaster struck and the Cutty Sark lost her rudder in a storm. From 1878 she carried coal between Shanghai and Sydney, and wool between Melbourne and New York, but her finest hour came in the regular Australian wool trade to London. Her design and speed were well suited to the rough seas of the Southern Hemisphere and between 1885 – 1895 the Cutty Sark was untouchable, even beating her old rival Thermopylae on no less than five occasions. The Cutty Sark was sold to a Portuguese firm and re-named the ‘Ferreira’ .She served the next 27 years sailing between Portugal and it’s colonies. In 1920 she was sold again and re-named the ‘Maria Do Amparo’ and in 1922 she was re-fitted in London. Captain Dowman purchased her, raised the Red Ensign, and she came home again. In 1924 she was restored as a Tea Clipper but was presented by Captain Dowman's widow to the Thames Nautical Training College where the Cutty Sark became a training ship. She was moved to Greenwich as an exhibit in 1951.
