    Really just a question, I recently purchased this old model from a used nautical shop.
    It is in need of much repair,but I think it is beautifully done.
    I was wondering if anyone in the group has any info or input about this model.

      I know it might be hard and looks like you actually already did, but in my opinion, I don't think this should be touched as far as "repairing" goes... It's very cool just as it is. I'd be curious to know how old this is. And was it in a bottle, how large is it? Or small. Wow, bet it's from the 1800's. It's been a hard lesson for me to learn, but I try now not to clean anything! If I get something in what some would think was poor condition, it's because I know it's value. Someone here may be able to come along and give you real info you need about this item.

      just a tip...could be useful..I can't tell from the picture, but maybe you can be able to get it in a range of date if you can tell what kind of nails or screws in it..that is if it has any that you can see..if it does, do a little research on the type of nail/ screw..hope that helps!

      Thanks,good idea,the over all length is approx 3 ft and 2 ft to the top of the main mast.so it is larger than the picture shows.
