HMS FLY - SWAN CLASS SHIP RIGGED SLOOP
 

(Display base with brass pedestals not included.)
 

HMS FLY - The British Admiralty commissioned the HMS Fly, a sixth rate Swan Class sloop in August of 1775. The keel was laid in January, 1776 and H.M.S. Fly slid off the launching ways on September 14, 1776. The HMS Fly displaced 300 tons, measured 97' and 7" on deck and carried a crew of 125. Sixteen cannon and 16 swivel guns served as armament. Sleek hull lines and lavish ornamentation contributed to her beauty. Not much remains about her career history, except that she captured two French privateers. She was lost off the coast of New Foundland in 1802.

Victory Models kit HMS Fly is based on original Admiralty plans plus many contemporary sources. Double plank-on-bulkhead construction uses high quality birch for structural parts. Other wooden parts are walnut and basswood. A comprehensive fittings package includes 4, 6 and 8mm dowels for masts, boom and bowsprit; 7 sizes of various blocks; 3 diameters of black and 6 diameters of beige rigging line. The rich ornamentation of the original vessel is accurately reproduced. You will find cast metal figurehead, stern ornamentation, quarter badge decorations and photo-etched brass for hull and stern decoration, rudder gudgeons and pintles, window frames, pillar moldings and more. Clearly written instructions plus 12 sheets of detailed plans (3 of them dedicated to rigging) pave the way to a magnificent model.


The paint sets for these kits are historically accurate colors that have been specially formulated for model ships. They are high quality acrylic based paints that can be thinned with water, thinner or alcohol. They clean up easily with water, making them ideal for airbrush use. Brushed or sprayed, paints dry flat with good grain structure and a smooth finish. The colors contained in each paint set are based on the colors shown in the picture of the model. 1 oz. bottles
