I'm in love with this model, by one Philip Reed, and just wanted to make the board aware of it. The definition of eye candy to my mind.

That IS a beautiful model, no doubt of that. Surprised the sails look so nice, considering they are only paper!

It is beautiful, thanks for posting.

Maybe missing it, but what scale is she?

Texas Jack13 Oct 2016 9:03 a.m. PST

It doesn´t give the scale, at least not that I can see, but based on the length of the model and the length of the real ship, I would guess it is around 1/76 or 72nd, or thereabouts.

She really is gorgeous!

I really want to see this, but the OP is deleted. Vexing.

Andrew the posting on top by Dentatus is deleted because the bug grabbed the thread when I clicked post, and fused mine with his. Check the second posting for the link.

The scale seems to be "One man = the length of George Washington's pigtail on a US quarter", or thereabouts. It's an increasingly popular wargaming scale :)

Beautiful, yet eerily sterile without crew. Imagine how these models would come to life with a few crew. Still, works of art. I would enjoy visiting the museum.

^ Hadn't read the comments yet and thought the same about the lack of crew. Just a few officers on the quarterdeck and a scattering of men about their work would make it even better than it already is.

Otherwise, beautiful ghost ship…
