Corsair

This Corsair model was built many years ago by Norm Perkins who is a long time member
 of the Metro Marine Modellers Club of Toronto.  The case containing the model was damaged
 in a move and as a result of that there was some damage to the sails and rigging which
necessitated the restoration.

Here we see the restored model.  All of the rigging and sails were replaced.  The hull and other components were
 left as they were in order to retain the original character of the model.
