County of Roxburgh
« on: February 27, 2012, 11:36:27 AM »

Completed today, 25'=1".    Scratchbuilt.    Metal masts and yards with wire rigging.      British full-rigged ship, 1886 - 1906.     Driven ashore on a Pacific island by a hurricaine in 1906, the hull still exists to this day.   A Google search will reval the full history.

Fantastic Bob! Another masterpiece. You must be some sort of masochist.

Beautiful mode.l Well Done.

This site has a nice history of the shipwreck, and some info on the captain. It was put together by a great granddaughter of the captain:
