Model identification:
"Compare models 219 for #891s Wildfire and 1324. Both models are for a 68ft waterline schooner, both were made in 1922, the former in December, the latter in February. Model 1324 is probably a study model for what later became Wildfire. Compare also with model 207, a study model for a schooner of 64' rating made in November 1922 which was used for #1078 Thistle in 1928." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. 2008.)
