Product Description

The clipper-bowed merchant brigantine Newsboy is one of the earliest designs of Dennison J. Lawlor. She was built by Elisha Brown in 1854 at Owls Head, ME at a cost of $20,000.00. Plying the New York – Mediterranean – West Indies “Triangular Trade” route, she carried New England manufactured goods to the Mediterranean, where she picked up wine, oils and fruits bound for the West Indies. From there, she returned to New England, her holds filled with rum, molasses and sugar.

Model Shipways’ Newsboy kit features a solid wooden hull that’s machine carved to the proper shape. Laser cut basswood parts for the cabin, companionways, keel, rudder and sternpost, plus beech dowels for masts and yards. Properly scaled Britannia metal castings include anchor, windlass, pump, binnacle, figurehead and lifeboat. Chains, nails, eyebolts, belaying pins and other small parts are brass and copper. More than 200 blocks and deadeyes plus five diameters of miniature rope recreate life-like rigging. Hull templates, two sheets of plans and updated instruction book by Ben Lankford help you build a beautiful model. (Wooden display base and pedestals shown are not included.)
