The Clipper sailboat is ideal for those just starting out in ship model building. The hull is easily assembled on the boat deck, on which the frames, the keel and the mast are simply attached and glued. The bottom of the hull and the side parts are made of thin plywood and are already prepared for gluing. The boat can be operated with or without a remote control with a servo for the rudder. The ballast on the mast is made of round steel, so the usual lead is not used.
With this model, the first time model maker gets to know the frame construction and the basic knowledge of model sailing.This kit is so well prepared that few tools are required for construction, the wooden parts are all pre-cut and the aluminum tubes for the mast and the booms are already cut to the correct length. The wire fittings are already bent and ready to be pushed onto the aluminum tubes.
The following tools are required: pins and adhesive tape.
The kit contains all wooden parts, fittings, oars, glue and detailed instructions in German, English, French, Italian and Spanish.
