Model Shipways Wood Ship Kit Charles Morgan Whale Bark 1:64 Scale Model Expo has been serving hobby enthusiasts with precision Models since 1976, and is a hobby tools Accessories manufacturer, distributor, and reseller. An official Mystic Seaport Series Model HISTORY: During her 80 years and 37 voyages, the Charles W. Morgan caught and processed more whales than any other whaling ship in history. Built in 1841 at the Hillman Brothers Shipyard on the Accent River in New Bedford, MA, she was registered at 351 tons. The Morgan was originally built fully ship-rigged, but shortly after the Civil War she was modified to become a double topsail bark. Her whaling days came to end in 1921 with the decline of whale oil prices. Purchased for Mystic Seaport in 1941, she’s now a beautifully restored monument to the men who built and sailed her. The Model Shipways’ kit replicates the Charles W. Morgan as a double topsail bark of 1892-1908. Lankford’s precise drawings (a set of six) are based on plans for the 1983 restoration, provided by Mystic Seaport. A 40 page step-by-step instruction book includes many of the author’s own photographs of the reconstructed vessel.
