BLUENOSE II Built in 1963, the Bluenose II is the last of the tall schooners. She's an exact replica of the original Bluenose, a Canadian fishing schooner that outraced New England's fastest fishing vessels in the Twenties and Thirties, landed record catches of fish, and even ran rum during Prohibition.
HMS Bounty Kit features traditional plank-on-bulkhead construction with double-planked hull. Wooden parts including the keel section and frames are pre-cut and ready for assembly. Anchor chains, eye-bolts, belaying pins and rudder hinges are all made of brass, as are the hundreds of pin nails you'll use to fasten the planking. Also included are blocks and deadeyes of walnut and boxwood, rigging and cloth sails.
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
CAUTION!! Although these are high
quality ship model kits, they may not be suitable for some one
not familiar with building foreign model ship kits.
