Yankee Hero, 1889 Maine Fishing Sloop, wooden boad kit by BlueJacket, #K1022

Handsome, seaworthy boats such as the YANKEE HERO met the need for fast, easily-handled boats to transport sardines to the processing plants in eastern Maine. YANKEE HERO was an actual boat whose model is in the National Watercraft Collection of the Smithsonian. She is typical of a type of craft known both as a ‘Quoddy boat or an Eastport pinky. BlueJacket has spent a year in the development of our Skillbuilder kits, so that anyone with the desire can craft a fine wooden ship model. While this model was designed with the first time builder in mind, everyone will enjoy owning this delightful model. This kit provides everything needed to complete a fine wood ship model in one box ! This model makes a great gift.

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.
