MV 50

Baltimore clipper
(Sc. 1:57 L. 520 mm. H. 350 mm.)

 

At the beginning of the 19th century in America numerous vessels with racy lines have been built. They were very fast and easy to head: the famous clippers of Baltimore. They were either busy as coast-guard coping with illegal smugglers or real pirates, or used for escort vessels and troopships.
