Lady Torfrida scale model ship b Jürgen Willing While we were discussing about a plan on the site, i learned that our follower Jürgen Willing just finished a scale model of Lady Torfrida . He was kind to share pictures of the model with us. Everything is handmade. I am sure you all will like the model and appreciate his labour on this beautiful model.

Jürgen Willing spent his 30 years on ships and 10 years on sailing ships! It is a rare experience in modern maritime environment and highly valuable in my oppinion. I would like to thank Mr. Willing once more here, for sharing these pictures.

    Beautiful model. My great grandfather captain Dugald McGlashan captained the boat I the late 1880s see this excerpt from a genealogical site

    “Rosehill” used to house Captain McGlashan of the Allan Line boats. He took the owner’s private steam yacht into Newton Bay to lie up for the winter. The name of this boat was ‘SS TORFREDA.’
    This location was Loch Fyne in Argyllshire

    Hi Linda,
    after my knowledge were there three Torfridas. On which one have you grandfather sailed? The Model shows L.T. from 1888, build by Fairfield Govan.
