Designed by George Steers, who later made history as the designer of the most famous yacht in the world…AMERICA! Speed and maneuverability were of the essence for these purpose designed and built working boats. In order to receive a piloting commission, boats would race to be first to greet incoming ships entering New York Harbor. While this excellent solid hull model of a schooner is perfect for the less experienced builder, her graceful lines make her an interesting subject for any modeler.
This is a solid-hull model kit that includes laser-cut stem, keel, stern post, and rudder. Dowels for masts and spars, strip woods and sheet wood for deck structures, rigging line, small sheet of photo-etched brass parts, dozens of brass fittings and over 70 Britannia metal fittings. Also included is a roll of copper foil tape for sheathing the hull, printed flags, plus full set of plans and an instruction booklet in English, with diagrams.
Scale 3/16″ = 1′ (1:64)
