Product Description

Sir Thomas Lipton launched his fifth challenger, Shamrock V, some ten years after his fourth had lost. For his challenger, Lipton turned once more to Charles Nicholson, who produced a beautiful sloop. When the races started, Shamrock found herself pitted against Enterprise. In the best-of-seven series Enterprise won four, Shamrock failed to score a single victory.

Kit includes pre-built solid wood hull; high quality wooden deck and planking; metal and wooden fittings; cloth sails.

Scale 1:80 - Total length 17.5", Height 24.4"
Intermediate Skill Level

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.
