From the Manufacturer
This MRC/Academy 1/150th scale plastic model of the famous Cutty Sark 3-masted Clipper Ship is absolutely brimming with detail. Built in 1869, she served as a merchant vessel (the last clipper to be built for that purpose), and then as a training ship until being put on public display in 1954 in Greenwich, England. Back-in-the-day, she posted Australia-to-Britain times of as little as 67 days, and in one instance outsailed the fastest steamship there was then, RMS Britannia. Her best run, 360 nautical miles (666 km) in 24 hours (an average 15 knots (28 km/h)), was said to have been the fastest of any ship of her size. Academy has pulled out all stops with this kit. Designed for easy assembly and painting the model stands 22" x 11.4" with full sheets to the wind. It's 100% new tooling makes an exquisite statement on the included display stand and will surely take pride of place in any shipbuilders collection.
