New Bedford Whaleboat

Regular price $299.99 Sale

Items remaining: 0

Traditional clinker-built whaleboat launch, used in New Bedford up to 1860. Sturdy and light, with similar bow and stern, the whaleboat launch carried a crew of six and a wide range of accessories for hunting and navigation. A whaleboat launch could be dragged by a harpooned whale for many miles before the whale tired, and sometimes it would take days to sail back to the mothership, so the launch was always well-stocked with drinking water, food and tobacco, along with mast, sails and compass. The kit has been carefully engineered to give hours of modelling enjoyment. It includes pre-cut keel and frames; internal planking in hardwood strips; pre-cut external planking; all accessories in wood, metal and resin, mast; instructions and construction plans. 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.
