Anyone Interested in Taking my Cutty Sark?
Posted by David_K on Monday, May 4, 2020 8:41 PM

Hi All-

I need to make some space in the Dave Cave for new projects....so I thought maybe someone on the forum might be interested in the Revell Cutty Sark I built last year?

It comes in a glass and wooden display case, with a table/stand.

I live in Washington state, about 45 minutes north of Seattle.

Just figured I'd throw it out there, and see if anyone has a home for it.

Thanks!

Dave

Of course I would love it, truly.

But at this time it's kind of impossible. 

You might consider selling it to a collector.

 

Nice offer, Dave!

Thanks, Bill.

Yes, it's a tricky time right now for everyone.

I wouldn't know how to find a collector, and honestly I don't need to make any money from it...but your suggestion did give me an idea...I wonder if any businesses near the waterfront would accept it as a donation to keep on display?  I may reach out to some local organizations, at least any that may be open and operating these days.

Thanks again, hope things are going well!

Some fine dining restaurants tend to like those kinds of decorations.  I have an old French galley I want to get rid of, and am thinking of contacting French restaurants in the area, to see if they'd take as a donation (wouldn't mind a free dinner).

Depending on the quality of the build you can make several hundred dollars selling it on ebay. The packing/shipping is a big deal specially the packing. You can list it as local pick up only to avoid tha packing headache. Just a thought.

All great ideas!  I just reached out to a local yacht club to see if they're interested in it...seems like an obvious choice.

Thanks!

If not there, then maybe one of the places in Pike Market, a charter office or the ferry offices.   Or one of the museums in the area.

How about a library or a history class at a local high school?

I have a USS Kearsarge going on the mantle of a library in an historical house that is now used for the meeting room of our Retirement Village. That is if and when this lockdown is lifted. When you ask around, you'll be surprised at the suggestions that you'll get.

The Bar Room at the Sardine Factory in Monterey, CA. The man who built this model passed away last November. I never knew him although I would have liked to. He was a chef who came to the US from Italy.

I've become friends with his family and have worked with them to put together a cookbook that he illustrated with really wonderful pencil drawings.

I was given his tools, leftover materials, and a collection of instruction books. If anyone needs the plans for an old HECEPOB model, I probably have them.

I donated a scratchbuilt 1/350 model of the USS Salamonie to the Salamonie Museum in Indiana....shipped it there from Oregon for about $65 - and it got there in one piece, no damage. They paid for the shipping.

Nice photo Bill. Now that's the way a nice room with a mantle should look.

That's our favorite date spot. A Manhattan, a cup of abalone bisque, a glass of white wine and fried calamari.

Gosh I miss going out.

Crossed one off the bucket list the other day. We've been going there for years, and decided to drop in at the last minute one night. Full room so I slipped the Captain a $ 10. That bill was missing from my hand before I even looked up. Presto, table by the fire.

Dave,

I have no doubts that someone will want that beautiful model you did. Heck, if I could, I’d drive up and pick it up myself. Or you’re more than welcome down here. Although, I happen to have a couple of Cutty Sharks myself and a Thermopylae thrown in for good measure.

Hope you and the family are safe and well bud.

Steve

ohh dang that sounds like a GREAT night out!

In the pattern: Lots in my stash. But let's close out the SOD and do the 1/350 Enterprise I started a few years ago.

*New projects* Dave?

If worse comes to worse..you can use the case and stand for another model or several smaller models.  Repurpose those at least.

Personally...I have two 1/96 Cutty Sarks..one in the library and one in a bedroom.  3 large ships (1/96 Cutty diorama, 1/72 Charles W. Morgan and the 1/128 Great Republic)in the library along with 3 smaller vessels and I have to still find room for 3 more 1/96 clippers(the Sea Which, the SwordFish and the Donald McKay).  The Glory of the Seas(1/96) is on a shelf between the dining and living rooms.  The Ferreira(AKA Cutty Sark)(1/96) is on a built in shelf at the head of the stairs.

I know how you feel about *tight*.   Hope you find a solution and or a new home for her.

Come to think of it, you just need a bigger Dave Cave!

If the yacht club doesn't work out, maybe you want to check out the Scuttlebutt Brewing Restaurant in Everett, just north of the Navy base.  And since there is a yacht sales place next door, maybe they could sell it for you?

Good luck

Thanks for all the suggestions and comments.  I realize how much I miss the community here, haven't been very active on the forums in some time.

The Everett Yacht Club is interested in displaying the CS, I think that will make a perfect home for her.

Bill, that restaurant looks like a place I'd like to have dinner!

Rob, I've seen your collection of models, they're incredible!

Steve... I definitely need a bigger Dave Cave.  The new place has a huge garage (in which I'm currently building workbenches, storage, etc.), but the trade off is that the *office* is quite a bit smaller than our previous home (I basically had 1/2 the upstairs area for activities and project displays!)...regarding new projects, I thought you'd be interested to know that I just received Bandai's Perfect Grade 1/72 Millennium Falcon model kit.  I know you're a Star Wars fan like me...if you aren't familiar with this kit, please check it out.  I think it's going to be something special when I finish it.

Anyway, thanks again to everyone.  I do still have my Imai Spanish Galleon partially-built...when I finally focus my attention on it and get closer to finished, I plan to create a thread to share some build pics and notes.

Stay Safe!

Dave

Hello Dave,

I'm a fellow Seattleite.  Wondering if the Center for Wooden Boats would be interested?  I know it's technically not a wooden boat model but you did an amazing build on this and it represents a great piece of nautical history.

Dale
