Grand Banks Dory – BlueJacket

(BJ-KLW102) Length 16″ / Scale 1’=1′



Grand Banks Dory (BJ-KLW102) Length 16″ / Scale 1’=1′

Remember Captains Courageous? On the tumultuous seas of the Grand Banks off northern New England, hardy cod fishermen set their hooked lines from these seemingly fragile cockleshells. Far tougher than the look, GRAND BANKS DORIES were built with wide boards and were designed to nest one inside another on the decks of the mother schooner. Built exactly the same way as the full-sized boats, the BlueJacket kit includes illustrated instructions created with the inexperienced builder in mind. Complete with all materials and a display cradle; most frames and planks are laser-cut.

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.
