Victory Ship (BJ-K1008) Length 27 1/2″ / Scale 1/16″ = 1′

Mid – 1940s – The Victory Ship made its appearance late in the war and was designed to replace the emergency Liberty ship. Larger and equipped with more powerful and modern engines than the Liberty ships, more than 500 were built, forming the backbone of the post-war U.S. Merchant Marine and serving under many foreign flags.

A re-release of the original 1946 Boucher kit, the Victory Ship has been completely upgraded, the plans cleaned up and new instructions written.

The kit includes a machine carved hull, Britannia metal and brass fittings, wood, wire and rigging line…all the materials you need to create an unusual and beautiful model cargo ship.

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.
