ANTIQUE U.S. NAVY BUILDER'S HALF HULL
SHIP MODEL Ca 1920
Antique Builder's Half
Block Presentation Model of Post World War One SP Class (Section Patrol) Vessel.
Presented is a rare half block model, similar in design to the
Section Patrol craft which served in World War One. It has the deck layout, and other characteristics of the
Herreshoff, USS Stinger, SP 1252, which was built in 1917 and served until May, 1919. But the model has a bulwark and
molded fantail. SP 1252's specifications were: Displacement 47 t.; Length 80' 6"; Beam 12' 5"; Draft 3' 5"; Speed 15
kts.; Complement 17; Armament one 1-pounder and one machine gun.
This model shows a more advanced hull shape with a finely sculptured underbody and molded
stern. A very handsome design in deed. The forward cap rail and some molding on the steering house front are recent replacements.
Otherwise, she is all original with paint and varnish having a patina of 87 years of age.
