model was built by Mike Seymour, using only hand tools and some beech
wood obtained from a psychiatrist's chair. The contruction follows that
of the full size craft with the use of a kettle rather than steam chest
to bend the planks for some of the curves.
Note the removable hatch covers of the fore and main hatches, which covered the cargo.
frames of the hull are not readily visible as the hold is lined.There
is further detailed work inside the focs'l and skipper's cabin which can
be see y looking through the hatches leading to these areas. Unfortunately
these are difficult to photograph.
This model was admired by a number of people interested in the authenticity of the construction.
