Lackawanna (BJ-K1002) Length 17-1/2″ / Height 9-1/4″ / Scale 1/8″=1′

The Lackawanna worked the East Coast, pulling barges of coal from Pennsylvania to the industrial centers to the south and the northeast. She was painted white to show off the clean burning qualities of the hard anthracite coal she burned, and her yacht-like appearance made her stand out among her fellow workboats.

BluJackets’s Lackawanna represents the state of the art in kit manufacturing.

From the pre-carved basswood hull to the specially designed photo-etched brass pilothouse and deck plates, cast brass ventilators and propeller, accuracy and quality have been the primary concerns. With a 20 page instruction book and over 40 fine Britannia metal castings, wood, rigging cord and decorative flags, this kit will let you produce one of the most interesting small steamer models we have ever seen.

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.
