Model Shipways Flying Fish Wood/metal Model Plank-on-Bulkhead Kit MS2018 - Model Expo

Model Expo has been serving hobby enthusiasts with precision hobby tools since 1976.

Donald McKay built the Flying Fish in 1851 at East Boston Massachusetts. It was registered at the Boston Custom House as a ship of 1, 505 tons, at a length of 207 feet & a beam of 22 feet.

Plank-on-bulkhead construction by Model Shipways features laser cut basswood keel and 21-piece bulkhead set. Stem, sternest, rudder, stern pieces & planksheer are also laser cut. The hull is planked with individual basswood strips, & we supply self-adhesive copper coil to sheath it below the waterline. Masts, yards & spars are high quality beech. Rigging plan is faithful to the original, with three diameters each of black standing & white running rigging, plus 200 wooden deadeyes & 225 blocks in various sizes. Eyebolts, backing links & ship's bell are solid brass. We reproduce virtually every detail of the real clipper ship, & expertly cast Britannia metal fittings ensure scale accuracy. You'll find figurehead, anchors, five ship's boats, capstans, binnacle, mast caps, windows & ladders, chocks, davits & stanchions.
assure trouble-free completion of a magnificent replica. (Display base, jig holding the ship model during construction & pedestals shown not included.)
