Product Description

Solid Wood Hull Model Ship Kit.

During the early 19th century, many Baltimore clippers were granted privateering licenses by the US government. Since all commerce was subject to the legalized banditry of privateers, only a fast, well handled ship could be reasonably sure of reaching its destination. Privateers like the Dapper Tom depended on their sailing abilities and fire power to prey on foreign shipping and to escape the British men-of-war patrolling the high seas.

The Dapper Tom, an 8-gun topsail schooner, is to great extent, typical of Baltimore Privateers of a stormy decade when ships were at the mercy of any stranger, and even armed ships were safe only in proportion to their nimbleness.

Model Shipways’ Dapper Tom kit features a machine carved basswood hull with accurately shaped bulwarks and transom. Fittings include 8 cast metal cannon, mast caps, anchors, capstan and gratings, brass eyebolts and belaying pins, plus hardwood blocks and deadeyes. Scribed decking, wooden masts and yards, and three diameters of cotton rigging provide the finishing touches of authenticity. With the help of clearly drawn plans and revised illustrated instructions by Ben Lankford, even first time builders can finish an impressive model.

Length: 24"
Height: 18"
Scale: 5/32" = 1 ft.

Display base and brass pedestals are not included.
