Sailing brig 'Marie Sophie' (1879)
Scale: 1:48. A full hull plank on frame 'working' model of the cargo brig 'Marie Sophie' (1879) complete with sails, the whole of which is mounted on keel blocks on a slipway. The detail and quality of this model is exceptional bearing in mind it was originally built as a ballasted sailing model. The hull has simulated copper sheathing as well as the newly introduced 'Plimsoll Line' amidships, a safety feature introduced by Samuel Plimsoll designed to stop the overloading of the hull with cargo. When the model was eventually 'retired' from its working life, all of the working fittings both inside the hull and modifications to the rigging were removed. It was then refitted and partially re-rigged as a static exhibition model.
