One of the fastest sailing vessels ever built, the clipper Cutty Sark represents one of the most romantic ages in the history of ocean travel. Launched in 1869, the Cutty Sark spent most of her time transporting goods around the world. She nows rests in Greenwich, England.
Aoshima's kit of the Cutty Sark features authentic detail throughout, including a detailed hull, vacu-formed plastic sails (you have to cut them out), thread for rigging, and a nice display stand. The split hull allows completion as either a full-hull or waterline model. Measures 22.9cm long when complete.
