1805 Swift







Here are some images of Artesania Latina's 1/50 scale Virginia pilot boat Swift.
It's interesting. I built this model about 7 years ago now and somehow it got overlooked. So without further ado...

Virginia pilot boats were used extensively on the Chesapeake and evolved into the famed Baltimore clippers.

I think that painting a wooden ship is sacrilege.

Staining the wood is OK though as long as one still sees the grain.
