This is a scale reproduction of the famous British tea clipper that seriously challenged the beauty and speed of the Cutty Sark in the great tea races of the mid 1800s.

A plank on frame construction, the kit contains building plans with general details, English instructions, lost wax brass castings walnut or lime planking, wooden masts and spars, brass and walnut fittings, laser etched details, rigging cord and silk flag.
