Our 1:384 scale model shows schooner SUBTLE in her 1812 appearance. We have 3 identical models in construction (check this page periodically for progress in photos). Models are made by marine artist Alexander Scherbak from carefully selected hardwoods (boxwood, pear, ebony, bamboo, pink ivory).  Tiny sailor holding tiller is carved from ivory ( he is the size of the president’s nose on the quarter!). The hull is only 3.5" long between perpendiculars. Architectural lines and details of the ship are expertly reproduced in extremely miniature size comparable to smallest known Prisoner-of-War models or Dieppe Ivory sailing ship carvings. 3 models are under construction. 2 available for pre-orders
