Product Description

Model Shipways' Fair American is a reproduction of a model built over 200 years ago, now on exhibit at the U.S. Naval Academy Museum at Annapolis, MD. She is said to represent the 14-gun privateer Fair American sailing out of Charleston in 1778.

Plank-on-bulkhead construction uses high quality basswood, the preferred wood of professional modelers. All structural hull parts and major fittings are laser cut, so they fit together with remarkable ease. Model Shipways’ Fair American kit contains over 60 cut or shaped wooden parts, plus 120 extra wood strips for a second layer of planking, should you wish to build your model with a double planked hull. More than 500 fittings of wood, brass and Britannia metal fittings include 14 brass guns on wooden carriages, cannon, chainplates, bell, anchors and wheel. Six plan sheets a 48 page instruction book by Erik A.R. Ronnberg, Jr. and Ben Lankford, plus a 38-page guide to planking the hull make building easy.

Intermediate Level Skill Level.
