PRIDE OF BALTIMORE II 19th CENTURY CLIPPER (replica)
 

In 1974, Baltimore city officials decided to build a replica of a 19th century clipper to serve as good-will ambassador for the city. The ship, named Pride of Baltimore, was launched at Baltimore's Inner Harbor on February 27, 1977. She was lost in micro-squall (an intense blast of wind building to hurricane velocity within seconds) on May 14, 1986. The city then commissioned a larger sister-ship, and the Pride of Baltimore II was launched on April 30, 1989.

Designed by naval architect Ben Lankford from original plans, our kit is an accurate representation. Ease of assembly and quality of components are two of the important attributes of the model. Structural parts, such as keel and bulkheads, are fine basswood, the choice of professional model builders. All wooden parts, from keel to sternpost, are laser cut for a perfect fit. Many of the Britannia metal castings have been designed specifically for this model, and include windlass life rings, vents, propellers, anchors, wheel, bilge pumps, and swivel guns. Ship's bell, port-lights, eyebolts and cannon barrels are brass. 150 wooden blocks and deadeyes, and four sizes of cotton line duplicate the rig plans and 48 page illustrated instruction manual guarantee smooth sailing. You'll display your finished model on wooden launching ways, also included with the kit.

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
