Very nice. Have you sailed your clipper? Did you use plans, or scale off ship drawings (and which ones)?

Thanks!

I drew up the plans from scratch based on classic designs at end of clipper era. Only sailed her in the bath tub for ballast placement. I have to finish the rigging. I liked the best Cutty Sark for inspiration.

Beautiful work on that clipper. Hope to see it on the water. I'm building 4 masted barque.
