Discover the Mayflower, a wooden model of this freighter ship of century XVII. This ship transported 102 English separatists - now known as the Pilgrim Fathers - from Plymouth to the New World, making this journey an iconic one within early American history. The Mayflower was a typical English merchant ship from the early 17th century. After two failed attempts to return to port for repairs, the famous voyage began on 6 September arriving at the coast of Newfoundland in November. It would not be until well into the winter when they managed to reach New England. On its return the Mayflower would be destroyed, being constructed almost three centuries later a replica that can be visited like boat museum in the port of Plymouth. 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.
