Model Shipways Bluenose Canadian Fishing Schooner Wood & Metal Kit, 1:64 Scale

The schooner Bluenose was built in Nova Scotia in 1921 to fish the rough waters off the coast of Newfoundland. A salt banker type, she stayed out until her holds were full, using salt to preserve the catch. Bluenose was lost on a reef near Haiti in 1946, but an exact replica was launched in 1963.

Model Shipways' kit is the most authentic representation of any Bluenose available. And now, thanks to newly drawn plans and revised instruction book by Ben Lankford, it's ever more accurate and easier to build.

Plank-on-bulkhead construction uses laser cut basswood parts for a perfect fit. Flexible basswood strips are supplied for planking the hull. Fittings are true to the originals, and include wooden blocks and deadeyes, Brass ring and eyebolts, plus Britannia metal bilge pump, fife rail and anchors. Three diameters of rigging line and cotton sailcloth ensure an impressive model. (Display base with brass pedestals not included.)

GREAT DETAIL

by DAVID -

I HAVE SPENT THE BETTER PART OF A YEAR WORKING ON THIS AND I FIGURE I HAVE ABOUT ANOTHER 6-12 MONTHS TO GO .SUPER NICE DETAIL THE ONLY DOWN SIDE IS THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE NOT VERY CLEAR SO THIS MODEL WOULD BE FOR THE MORE ADVANCED MODELER AND IT HELPS TO HAVE A MECHANICAL APTITUDE .
