Flog It Blog It, Shipshape And Bristol Fashion!

Sovereign of The Sea model!

Model of Sovereign of the Seas will cost you an arm and a leg to build.

The warship the ‘Sovereign of the Seas’ was built in 1637 and took 22 months to complete. Launched in 17th century and also known as the infamous ‘Golden Devil’, HMS Sovereign of the Seas was the largest vessel of her time. However model replica enthusiasts can build their own version which will take a mere two years and seven months to finish, longer than the real thing. A new weekly magazine is providing parts over 135 issues costing around £805 which was probably more than the original ship cost. After a cheap introductory offer of £1.99 pounds for the first issue each copy then costs £5.99. Ladies if you want to keep your man safe at home at night whilst guaranteeing he'll be both out of your hair and sober buy it now. Give him a subscription to this magazine and keep the tea and biscuits coming. Praise his skills as a carpenter and shipwright and wonder in the domestic tranquility that you have now created. As for the real ‘Sovereign of the Seas’ her career came to end in 1696 when she caught on fire. Anyone got a box of matches handy?

We have be given two awards by Sheba and we would like to say a BIG thank you and you made our Monday morning. We will post an award blog during the week, 


  1. We started to build a plane, with these magazines...spent £500, never got the remaining issues, so the plane was never built and we were £500 lighter in the pocket...We've learn't our lesson!!! Big congratulations on the awards Molly :)

  8. Hi Molly

    Hours and hours of fun to be had by all, they fun of sticking little bits of sticks together all for £1.99. Not to mention picking out all the hairs stuck to your abstact model of gods know what, because they never turn out like the magazine one on the front cover.Even more fun when you're chewed it to bits because you thought it was your chews all stuck together!
