AJAX - English Frigate1765 AJAX - Launched in Plymouth in 1765, Ajax was armed and supplied five years later, when it sailed for its first trip to North America In 1786, during a winter mission in Atlantic, it ran into a severe storm that seriously damaged it. The paint sets for these kits are historically accurate colors that have been specially formulated for model ships.
The storm lasted three days but with some temporary repairs, it managed to reach Scotland after a journey lasting forty-five days. She was destined for the China tea trade, then an intensely competitive race across the globe from China to London. They are high quality acrylic based paints that can be thinned with water, thinner or alcohol. Within a month, some major repairs were carried out and it set sail to Plymouth.Ajax sailed for the next twelve years but was disarmed and abandoned in the Plymouth navy yards.
In the end, clippers lost out to steamships that could pass through the recently opened Suez Canal and deliver goods more reliably.


However, in 1801, the Admiralty was keen to expand its fleet and decided to utilize again some disarmed ships like the Ajax. Cutty Sark was then used for the Australian wool trade and sold in 1895 to a Portuguese company, returning to the UK in 1923. At the end of 1802 the ship sailed with the Mediterranean fleet and participated in the Toulon siege with other English ships, amongst which was the famous HMS Victory, commanded by Admiral Nelson. In 1954, Cutty Sark was restored and moved to a custom-built dry-dock and put on public display at Greenwich, London. The colors contained in each paint set are based on the colors shown in the picture of the model. The exceptional elegance and beauty of her line, allied to her incredible speed and wealth of details, have contributed to the unique legend of the Cutty Sark.
