Fannie A. Gorham (BJ-K1016) Length 24-1/2″ / Scale 1/8″
Launched in 1881 in Belfast, Me. the Gorham was built for the coastal trade, carrying lumber and other cargo from New England to southern ports. BlueJacket built and finished a model of this ship for the grandson of the captain when she was “lost at sea with all hands”.
This is a solid hull kit for the intermediate builder, and is an unusual and interesting subject for any modeler with her off center main mast, centerboard and shallow draft.

BlueJacket is one of the leading manufacturers of quality wooden ship model kits. This Maine-based company is perhaps the oldest ship model kit manufacturer, having been in continuous operation since 1905! The company focuses on American subjects. Most kits feature pre-carved solid wood hull, but many kits are laser-cut plank-on-bulkhead and some are even true plank-on-frame kits.
BlueJacket also maintains the Laughing Whale line of kits, which are predominantly small American watercraft. With the demise of Midwest boat kits, these are about the only source for these small subjects. However, you will find them to be excellent quality kits of classic subjects.
Note that BlueJacket kit instructions are provided in english only.
