Billing Boats HMS Bounty

This historic ship HMS Bounty, wasn’t always known for rebellion. Originally a collier named Bethia, the Royal Navy acquired her in 1787 for a fascinating mission: to collect breadfruit plants in the South Pacific for the West Indies. ⁣

But paradise can turn stormy. In 1789, tensions between Fletcher Christian, the acting lieutenant, and Captain William Bligh boiled over. The crew mutinied, setting Bligh adrift in a small boat (with a surprisingly loyal crew!).⁣

Bligh, a tough sailor himself, miraculously navigated for weeks to safety and brought the mutineers to justice. The Bounty’s story doesn’t end there, though. The mutineers eventually burned the ship and settled on a remote island, leaving a legacy of adventure and rebellio

Billing Boats HMS Bounty is a scale model of an armed trading frigate. The kit includes laser cut wooden framework parts and wood planking for a single-planked wooden hull construction. Also included with the kit is a full fittings set, rudder, rigging thread, plans and multi-language manual. This is a kit for experienced ship modelers. Before building this kit, we strongly advised to have build a few models before attempting this one.
