Few ships can claim fame as readily as the Flying Dutchman. This ghost ship has been a staple in nautical mythology for over one hundred years, appearing as a ghostly mystery that heralds great doom and misfortune. This model features all the hallmarks one would expect of a realistic ghost ship. It is faded and time-worn, and everything about it seems worn by an unrealistic amount of time spent at sea. Regardless of appearance, though, the model is made from high-quality woods, including black walnut, rosewood, and birch, as well as featuring several incredibly precise details. Even better, the Flying Dutchman Model Ship arrives fully assembled, ready for display, although hopefully with this model you can simply enjoy the mystery and the legend, without having to deal with the doom and misfortune that typically accompanies looking upon the Flying Dutchman.

History of the Flying Dutchman
Few can claim to know much about the Dutchman, and even its origins are a mystery. It simply appears, and then vanishes, and those who witness it usually report that it brings ill fortune and doom on occasions. Several stories state that the Flying Dutchman can attempt to make contact with requests to deliver letters to places long-since gone or people long-since dead. Accepting these letters is universally known to bring devastation upon a ship and its crew.
