ADMIRALTY STYLE MODEL CLIPPER SHIP FLYING CLOUD

 
 

Presented is a magnificently made block model of one of the most famous sailing ships in American maritime history, This very special model is complete to the tops of her lower masts in all respects which includes all the details of standing but without the spars and attendant, running rigging. By stopping at the lower mast, the model is accommodated in a custom made glazed case that is only 39 inches long and 19 1/2 inches high making it suitable to be displayed on a shelf rather than on a table or special purpose stand. In British Admiralty style, the back of the case is a sheet of reflective Mylar which displays the side away from the viewer, and when seen from certain angles a complete second image is seen.
 
It is an exceptionally realistic model that is outstanding in all respects, and may fittingly be called "MUSEUM QUALITY". The original Flying Could was designed by famous ship builder David McKay and launched in 1851 in East Boston. In her first passage, from New York to San Francisco she set a record still held today of 89 days, 22 hours. Her registered dimensions were 229' LOA, 40'8" beam and 21'6" draft and 1,782 registered tons.
 
 
Models of this quality are offered by a nautical gallery in Boston where they are priced at over $3000.00 This model is from the same source. It is exact in its design and equal in the quality of the workmanship. All the customary gear and equipment is in place and carefully replicated.
 
By comparison to other models this is LARGE at 39" overall and 19 1/2" high. (base to the top of mast)  
 
                   Detailed quarter deck
            Teak laid deck detail midships
   Handsome bow, Cat Head and anchor
                       Custom hardwood case
PRICE ONLY $1975.00 save $1000.00

THE HISTORY OF FLYING CLOUD:
An extreme clipper launched in 1851, at the shipyard of Donald McKay, East Boston, for Enoch Train, Boston.
 
If great length, sharpness of ends, with proportionate breadth and depth, conduce to speed, the Flying Cloud must be uncommonly swift, for in all these she is great. Her length on the keel is 208 feet, on deck 225, and over all, from the knight heads to the taffrail, 235 - extreme breadth of beam 41 feet, depth of hold 21, including 7 feet 8 inches height of between-decks, dead-rise at half floor 20 inches, rounding of sides 6 inches, and sheer about 3 feet. Duncan McLean in The Boston Daily Atlas, April 25, 1851.
