Flying Fish: American clipper ship 1851Kit
Plank on frame construction .
This kit features laser cut basswood keel and 21-piece bulkhead set. Stem,
sternest, rudder, stern pieces and planksheer are also laser cut. The hull is
planked with individual basswood strips, and we supply self-adhesive copper coil
to sheath it below the waterline. Masts, yards and spars are high quality beech.
Rigging plan is faithful to the original, with three diameters each of black standing
and white running rigging, plus 200 wooden deadeyes and 225 blocks in various
sizes. Eyebolts, backing links and ship's bell are solid brass. We reproduce virtually
every detail of the real clipper ship, and expertly cast Britannia metal fittings
ensure scale accuracy. You'll find figurehead, anchors, five ship's boats, capstans,
binnacle, mast caps, windows and ladders, chocks, davits and stanchions, even
the cabin stove! Six sheets of beautifully drawn plans and 56 page step-by-step
instruction manual by noted naval architect, Ben Lankford, assure trouble-free
completion of a magnificent replica. (Display base and brass pedestals not included.)
