Full Description

Full exterior visible details with model construction for plank on frame.

Full Size: Bluebird of Chelsea, formerly Blue Bird, is a motor yacht originally built for Sir Malcolm Campbell.Ownership by Sir Malcolm Campbell She was built in 1931 by Thornycrofts of Southampton, as a twin petrol-engined wooden carvel-built motor yacht. Campbell sold her after three years, as his motor-racing experience made him wary of the fire risks of petrol engines aboard. He was also highly superstitious and believed a gypsy warning that “his death would come from the water”. In hindsight, this may have applied more to his son Donald.
