Product Description

This deluxe set includes a deluxe tool set, paint, glue and a Ancient Mariner Sounds of the Sea sound effects audio CD. Makes a great nautical gift.

The Cutter Lady Nelson is modelled on a typical British cutter of the late eighteenth, early nineteenth century. The cutter is a native British design and was developed originally by the smugglers of Folkestone and surrounding areas. It did not take long for the Navy to appreciate the merits of the cutter’s design and were employed in the Navy from the middle of the eighteenth century to counter the smugglers. The cutter was designed for speed, adopting an unusually large spread of sail for the size of vessel, deploying both fore and aft and square sails on a single mast. Cutters excelled at patrol and despatch duties due to their speed; however they were not suitable for close in shore work due to their deep draught. The original vessel was 52’ 6” long at the keel, 17’ 6” wide, weighed about 60 tons and carried a compliment of about 30 officers and men. Her armament was 10x 3 pounder carriage guns and 12x swivel guns on her bulwarks.

The Lady Nelson kit has been designed with the beginner/intermediate modeller in mind, and as such it is an ideal introduction to the art of plank on bulkhead modeling. Kit contents include laser cut wood parts throughout in birch plywood and walnut, metal and wooden fittings and very comprehensive building plans and instructions written in English. The wood base and brass pedestals are included with this kit.

Scale 1:64, Total Length 20.86", Height 20"
Advanced Beginner Skill Level.

For static display model use only.

For new or limited experience wood modelers, we strongly recommend the technique book Ship Modeling Simplified.

Please note: The manufacturer of this wood kit is based in Italy. Although complete plans and instructions are included, the limited English instructions provided require critical thinking and some modification as needed. This is not a build by numbers kit, and is not for everyone. Additional technique books, and or access to the advice of an experienced wood modeler or wood model club is recommended.
