Bluenose II 1:100 Scale (BB600)
Scale model of a schooner from the year 1929. 1:100 scale Wooden hull 16.93″H 20.47″L 3.35″W
The schooner Bluenose has a very special place in the history of navigation and yachting. Built to fish off the Newfoundland coast, the ship soon turned out to be such a fast sailer that she won all the great classical regattas along the USA’s Eastern coast. She was built in Nova Scotia in 1929, and shipwrecked near Haiti in 1946. A true copy – Bluenose II – was launched in 1964
The hull is assembled in halves, on a table. This allows for easier assembly and is quite useful in learning plank-on-frame or plank-on-bulkhead construction! Once each half is done you join the two for a completed hull. Make sure you work each half in opposite directions so that when joined they marry up evenly!
