BlueJacket Alfred

The Alfed was a frigate that sailed under the direction of Captain Dudley Saltonstall on American Revolutionary war. In 1775, the Alfred frigate was commissioned by the Continental Congress and was one of the first ships in the newly formed Continental Navy.

The Alfred frigate played a significant role in the early stages of the American Revolutionary War, participating in naval operations against British forces. The ship was involved in numerous engagements and played a crucial role in securing American independence.

The Alfred frigate was named after Alfred the Great, the King of Wessex, who is known for his military victories and efforts to unify England. The ship itself became a symbol of American patriotism and defiance against British rule.

The Alfred frigate was a key asset for the nascent American Navy, and its actions helped establish the United States as a maritime power. The ship’s exploits and contributions to the war effort are remembered as part of the proud naval history of the United States.

The BlueJacket Alfred is a kit for expert modelers, especially those who love the challenge of square riggers. The instruction book is a almost textbook on the details of 18th century naval design and outfitting. This amazing model will fit into any décor or modest space.
