Product Description

Privateers were privately owned vessels whose owners were commissioned by the government to carry on naval warfare. Privateering is not considered piracy, which is performed without government authorization. During the 18th century, many small single masted ships were armed and used for privateering. These Chesapeake-built vessels were fast and easily maneuverable with a graceful sheer and a low freeboard. They evolved from the Bermuda sloops of c. 1740 and the trim, sharp Virginia schooners found in Steel’s Naval Architecture of 1805.

Model Shipways’ kit is based on a drawing found by nautical historian Howard I. Chapelle in European archives and reconstructed by John F. Millar, author of Early American Ships. Our exciting new kit, Armed Virginia Sloop from Model Shipways has all the accuracy and detail seasoned modelers crave, yet it's easy enough for a novice to build.

Double plank-on-bulkhead construction uses laser cut basswood and walnut parts and planking strips. Britannia metal castings and a host of brass, copper and wooden parts duplicate deck hardware and accessories. Six cannon and eight swivel guns serve as armament. Beech mast, yards and boom, over 200 yards of rigging line in four diameters, plus a variety of walnut deadeyes and blocks assure scale accuracy. Hardwood stock for launching ways is also included.

Seven sheets of meticulously drawn plans and a 40 page step-by-step instruction manual help you create a true museum quality replica of Model Shipways' Armed Virginia Sloop.
