ADMIRALTY MODELS, A BRITISH TRADITION. Only then, upon consideration, would the Board approve funding for it. Called admiralty models, these were some of the finest ever made.
They were unrigged with exposed hull and deck framing to allow inspection of the vessel's architecture, deck furnishings and decorative work in a three-dimensional format. We've designed our kit as an admiralty model as well to show off the incredibly rich detail of its decks, furnishings and fittings.Additionally, the quarterdeck is left un-planked on the port side, leaving the great cabin and gun deck visible. Plank-on-bulkhead construction features laser cut basswood and walnut components, including port sills, lintels and uprights.
We supply nearly 400 basswood and walnut strips, over 250 boxwood blocks (for cannon), deadeyes, and 300 eyebolts. Twenty-eight cast Britannia 12-pounder cannon and 4 six-pounders on wooden carriages replicate Confederacy's armament.
Figurehead, stern decorations and other ornamental pieces are also cast metal. Kit includes laser cut display cradle. Sheets of plans leave no detail unrecorded, and the 150-page illustrated step-by-step instruction manual is the most complete ever done.Hull Length 35" /Height 8-1/2" /Scale 3/16 = 1 ft.
