Hello Stein , I think I will go with Flying cloud a fine looking ship with a great history I have to say, mind you a hard choice from all the other great American ships of that time , you have sent me all the imformation I need with regards to house flag and I can clearly pick up on her figure head in fact it is going to keep me busy for ages many thanks for taking the trouble best wishes Dave .

I'm pleased those links were of interest. Here's one of my attempts at portraying the famous clipper: http://www.shipsnostalgia.com/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/193872/title/flying-cloud/cat/533

Stein - I a great lover of clippers (courtesy of my father), may I say that is a fantastic painting, maybe art critic's could discuss it and its attributes and faults but I just see things I like - and I love that(Thumb)

Thanks boys. I have great confidence in your abilities as art critics (==D). (I just sold the picture btw, after five years of exhibiting it - to an old lady:sweat:.)

I built the FLYING CLOUD some years ago, but always felt she had a rather heavy stern. Here it is, but that was before I learned to set the courses properly.

Looks good. You seem to have kept your boats inboards. (or are they all black and invisible?). Not knowing for sure what the practise was, I have decided to gripe a pair of boats outboards on all passenger carriers I paint or model.

The boats are all inboard and painted white. Have a feeling I got the plans from the Smithsonian, but not really sure.
