Star of the classic film “Captains Courageous” BlueJacket’s only kit of a fictional vessel.

We’re Here is an accurate model of a typical Gloucester fishing schooner. Her name will be familiar to those who remember the 1937 movie, based on Kipling’s novel, starring Spencer Tracy and Freddy Bartholemew.

We’re Here is an excellent choice for the beginning wooden ship modeler. It is a handsome, medium-sized model. The beautifully-drawn plans and clear, comprehensive instruction booklet provide information for the more experienced modeler who wants to add the myriad telling details that mark the work of a creative craftsman.

The kit comes with a pre-carved basswood hull, many brass and finely-cast Britannia metal fittings and all the wood stock and rigging supplies you need to complete an interesting and graceful Grand Banker.

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.
