Our Flying Cloud model replica required hundreds of hours to construct from scratch (not from a kit!) by our master craftsman
Built with the finest woods such as ebony, rosewood, black wood, mahogany, jack wood, and sycamore
This scale model ship is painted exactly like the actual Flying Cloud, the holder of the world's sailing record for the fastest passage between New York and San Francisco (89 days 8 hours).
Our tall ship models are micro-sanded many times to ensure maximum update for paint and varnish. Every time the model is micro-sanded, a layer of primer, paint, and varnish is applied. This time-consuming re-application and layering process is what gives our model ship replicas their realistic sheen.
Look at the very accurate features of the clipper model, including: painted wooden hull, planked deck, painted lifeboats, wood deck houses, taught rigging, metal chains, masterfully stitched thick white sails.
This Flying Cloud model ship rests perfectly on a large wood base (marble base pictured).
To build this ship model, extensive research was done using various sources such as museums, drawings, copies of original plans and photos of the actual ship.
