I have been doing a bit of research on the original and found out all about her.

She was famous for the race against 'Natchez' in 1870, which she won. Her total weight was 1467 tons and she cost $200,00 to build. She only lasted 16 years and caught fire in September 1882.

Her length was 285.5 foot long as against my model of 13 inches. Am I correct with the scale at 1:230 which puts her smaller than the model railways ''Z' scale.

Cheers
