Red Jacket (BJ-K1017) Length 41″ / Scale 1/8″

RED JACKET was probably the best known and most beautiful of the extreme clippers launched in 1853 (the golden year of the clippership era). Proof of the fine sailing ability of RED JACKET is the fact that she is one of only 10 sailing ships to ever exceed a passage of over 400 nautical miles made good in a 24 hour time period. On her maiden voyage she set a record for commercial sailing vessels which stands to this day, New York to Liverpool in 13 days, 1 hour and 25 minutes.BlueJacket’s

kit is designed for expert modelers. Her plans are the finest available, based upon the most current research.

The kit contains their famous carved hull, along with a great deal of etched brass, pewter fittings, etc.

Brand

BlueJacket

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.
