SS Felicity

1/700 SS Felicity (Battlefleet Models)

SS Felicity is a fictitious small coaster based on the fine little resin kit manufactured by Battlefleet Models.

The kit was reviewed at here.

I decided to NOT build SS Pearl, as I wanted to make a model that combined a number of features of vessels of the era.

As SS Felicty, registered in Southampton, is a rather freelance. I have depicted her in an aft quartering sea, using some of her sails as steadying canvas to dampen the roll as she is en route from Falmouth to Southampton with a load of gravel.

A description of various aspects of the build can be found here.

I enjoyed this project immensely and it makes an attractive display model.
