True plank on frame ship kit. Designed for the advanced modeller, these kits follow true plank on frame construction just as the real boats were built.
Model Expo' kit is relatively easy to build, thanks to CAD-assisted laser-cut basswood parts, which come in a variety of thicknesses from 3/32" to 1/8". Fine basswood is also used for hull and deck planking. An unusual feature of this model is that the hull is planked inside and out.
A host of fittings ensures that the model you'll build is authentic to the last detail. Masterfully cast Britannia metal guns are miniature versions of the original armament. Brass nails, eyebolts, belaying pins and split rings are correctly scaled, and a photo-etched sheet of detail parts adds the finishing touches. Deadeyes, blocks and bullseyes are ready-to-use hardwood. Six diameters of rigging line and ample sail material are also included. Six sheets of plans, parts list with parts identifier and clearly written instruction manual guarantee a great modelling experience.
