The last clipper
We are currently working on a 3d model of the sailing clipper
Cutty Sark is a clipper ship built in 1869. She served as a merchant
vessel (the last clipper to be built for that purpose), and then
as a training ship until being put on public display in 1954.
She is preserved in dry dock at Greenwich in London, but was damaged
in a fire in 2007 while undergoing extensive restoration.
The ship is named after the cutty sark (Scots for a short chemise
or undergarment). This was the nickname of the fictional character
Nannie (also the name of the ship's figurehead) in Robert Burns'
1791 comic poem Tam o' Shanter.
