The challenge for anyone trying to take a picture of a schooner or any other masted vessel is getting up close for all the detail while keeping the mast and or bowsprit in the frame. You can elect to take a picture of the entire boat or you can take portions, leaving out the bowsprit and/or mast. For our purposes here I wanted to take you in close so you could see just how detailed these ship models are. If this picture was taken of the entire boat you wouldn’t get the up close details.
As always you can click on the picture and select “all sizes” to see the larger version of this picture.
This 18th century French bomb catch is an example of a natural wood ship model versus one that would be painted, copper sheathed or other type of model. This type of ship model shows shows the wood on wood construction.
