Product Description

This wood kit is based on a craft discovered in Harris Creek, Maryland in 1954. You'll build your model the way the real Willie L. Bennett was built, following the plank-on-frame techniques used on life-sized skip-jacks. To make building easy, we've supplied laser cut wooden molds, keelson and transom. Basswood is used throughout. Outfit your craft with cast Britannia metal anchor, ship's wheel and deck machinery. Deadeyes and deck machinery. Deadeyes and blocks are wood, and there's plenty of brass for eyes, hoops, rings and chain. Sail cloth and rigging line complete your model. The 56 page English instruction book by Ben Lankford gives you a wealth of detail with lots of photographs and drawings. Three sheets of plans are so accurate that you could almost build a real skipjack using them! (Display base and pedestals not included.)

Length: 24", Height: 16", Scale: 1:64

Intermediate Skill Level.
