Having lived in San Diego for over 50 years and have been building ships for the last 35 years, I wanted a model of the Star of India moored at the Maritime museum. Since there are no kits of her I decided to embark on my first scratch build of her. Using plans purchased from the museum and hundreds of pictures and measurements taken on board I started to build. This is a picture of her under way off the San Diego coast.
