The schooner Bluenose has a very special place in the history of navigation and yachting. Built to fish off the Newfoundland coast, the ship soon turned out to be such a fast sailer that she won all the great classical regattas along the USA's Eastern coast. She was built in Nova Scotia in 1921 and shipwrecked near Haiti in 1946. A true copy - Bluenose II - was launched in 1964. This kit includes parts for the assembly of one wooden kit. The set requires tools, glue and paint in order to be completed. Paints and glue are not included. For modelers aged 14 and older.
