Item details

The transition period from sail to steam in the Ocean Passenger Services is one which has been sadly neglected by the model builder, yet it offers some really fascinating ships, combining interesting features of both eras, and a very good example of this class was the Cunarder "SERVIA" built by J. & G. Thomson of Glasgow in 1881. She was a vessel of 7,392 tons gross and might truly be described as one of the ocean greyhounds of her period, a long sleek steel vessel carrying a modified barque rig and two raking funnels, she looked and was a real thoroughbred.

 

From the model-man's point of view she has much to offer, providing plenty of scope for fine detail about her docks and superstructure without the monotonous repetition work of multitude of identical fittings to be made for the modern liner. Her rig too provides the interesting features of a sailing ship's spars without the amount of detail found in the true square-rigger, while lastly, it is out of the ordinary run of models.

Scale. 1/16" = 1' 0". Length O.A.. 33.25".
