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.
