Modeled from the two Tuna Clippers (sister ship is Sea Magic) of the Avondale Marine Ways Company of New Orleans. These hard-working boats and crews roamed the ocean year-around in a dangerous business. Many vanished without a trace. The Gulf Star was wrecked on a reef off Peru. Model has a hull length of 13.5 inches. Very nicely detailed kit even includes rigging material and rigging instructions. Never started. Parts are still in factory sealed bags. Includes instructions.
