This Interesting Relic Has Been Sold. Thank You!
 
WW ONE 110 FOOT
SUB CHASER - MINESWEEPER CLASS MODEL BOAT
With Electric Motor and Running Gear
 

PRESENTED is a kit built model of what appears to be one of the World War One "Splinter Boats" that saw dual service both as sub chasers (SC) and mine sweepers. They were normally crewed by 23 enlisted men and two officers and were known for their rough riding and rolling due to their long slender hull. These wooden hull vessels were built from 1917-1919 for the US Navy and the French Navy During WW I. During 1917-1919 there were 3 contracts with 38 different builders, totaling 427 hulls.
 
They had a displacement of 75 tons normal and 85 tons fully loaded. Their length was 110' with a beam of 14' 8", and a fully loaded draft of 5 feet 8". Three 220 H.P. Standard gasoline engines gave them a full speed of 16-17 kts. They had a patrol range of 900 miles at 10 kts, carrying 2400 gallons of fuel. The crew complement was 23/2.

Armament consisted of one 6 pounder and 2 machine guns. Not all boats were armed the same and the majority had one 3-inch (23 cal.), two Colt machine guns and one Y-gun. Some carried extra 6 pounders. All were equipped with depth charges.
 

 
THE MODEL: The model appears to have been made from a kit. It replicates many of the design features of the WW I Class of 110 footers, but is different in some minor respects. The model does not have the bridge wings that were standard, and has a smoke stack which was not. Also, the sheer has a low bulwark where the standard 110 footers were flush decked. Otherwise, the resemblance is remarkably similar. It is possible that the model is of a vessel that was a predecessor to the 110 Foot Class. In the early Navy's days, many variations in design are known to have existed in the small boat fleet, but  there is little information available.
 
Comes complete with custom stand that has an engraved brass plaque that reads
"WW I Minesweeper".

MODEL CONSTRUCTION: Made by an experienced builder from a kit which included an electric motor and the necessary battery holders, speed control, shaft, propeller and other running gear. It is constructed mostly of wood, with some metal parts such hatches, two ladders, the beautiful cast bronze propeller, shaft, various blocks, a towing machine aft. The rigging made of sail maker's yarn. This model is exceptional because of the near exactness of its 49:1 scale, and the extensive attention to detail.
 
The hollow hull is fitted out with a battery compartment under the pilot house, and an engine room under the trunk cabin, The hull is made from carved wood. The ship has all the deck detail of the original starting with an anchor davit, twin capstans, and 6 pound cannon on the foredeck, a raised bridge with metal access ladders port and starboard, and then engine compartment with smoke stack over. Next aft is her mast with boom for launching the ship's boat and finally a companion way hatch which has a speed control along side. There is a highly detailed towing winch on her fantail with two sets of double bollards on the centerline, and two single bollards on each quarter. Passageway doors are cast in metal with excellent detailing, one amidships on each side and one aft. Th The large cast bronze propeller and the fully embroidered American flag add further realism.
 
CONDITION: The model is estimated to be approximately 75 years old. It is in exceptional "original" condition. Expect to see some minor age wearing of the paint. The only exceptions are that the top of the main mast was broken years ago and when glued back is not exactly straight. There also is some running rigging missing from the boom. Even though all the parts and wiring seem present no attempt was made to install a single "C" type battery and try to run the electric motor.  None of this distracts from the over all exceptional looks and workmanship of this great looking model.
 
APPROXIMATE DIMENSIONS:
 
Model 27" L x 16" H x 3 3/4" W              Weight 10 pounds
