Iron barque
« on: June 13, 2018, 08:24:40 AM »

25 feet to 1 inch scratchbuilt.     Masts, spars and rigging, 100% metal.    Completed a few days ago.    This is a merchant ship.   The ports are just decoration, they do not open, they do not conceal guns. This type of model is very much sought after by collectors, but for some reason, they are rarely modelled!

Another nice model . There is at least one iron sailing ship wreck outside Port Stanley and one accessible at low tide

Beautiful workmanship  :-))


The ship in question in Port Stanley is the SS Lady Elizabeth. If you look for my thread on my detachment to the Falklands you’ll be able to see some pictures of her.

Another beautiful model Bob. Your sails and rigging put mine to shame, but I am improving......I think....

Thanks for link.   Goodness knows why I couldn't find it, as I am normally quite good with computers.   Interesting thread.   I was there from 1982 to 1983.   At that time, there were no restrictions on photography. so I had a marvellous time looking at the wrecks.   Being on a ship, and having access to the boat, I was able to get aboard Lady Elizabeth on several occasions.     Other sailing ship wrecks included  Fleetwing, William Shand, Snowsquall, Egeria, Charles Cooper, Jhelum, Capricron, Jennie S Barker.    Here is Jhelum, fairly complete at the time, but now, most of it has collapsed into the harbour.Bob
