C.N.S. Alfred | The first American flagship. Converted from a merchantman into a light frigate, ALFRED became the first flagship of the new Continental Navy in 1775, flying the Grand Union flag of the United Colonies. John Paul Jones served as a lieutenant on her, the beginning of his brilliant naval career. This is a kit for expert modelers, especially those who love the challenge of square riggers. Based upon the research of Larry Arnot, the instruction book is a textbook on the details of 18th century naval design and outfitting. This delightful model will fit into any décor or modest space.
