    Stephen Pinney a world-renowned builder of marine models. Since the 1970s he has been building historically and technically accurate models. In the late 1970s Pinney crafted several weather-vanes in copper and iron during long Cape winters. These weathervanes included ships, a humpback whale and The Golden Cod. Pinney spent hours casting and then hand gilding the elaborate details of this unique fish from which the name “Cape Cod” is derived and which remains a symbol of Massachusetts.
