Billing Boats Bluenose II Racing Schooner - Plank on Frame Wood Ship, 1/100, 600

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$109   

Still factory sealed. Scale model of this world-famous and beautiful schooner originally from 1929. 1:100 scale kit measures 16.93"H x 20.47"L x 3.35"W. From the Billing website - "All of the 600 Series Model Boat Kits (item numbers 600-609) include an easier way of building the hull. The hull is assembled in halves, on a table. This allows for easier assembly and is quite useful in learning plank-on-frame or plank-on-bulkhead construction! Once each half is done you join the two for a completed hull. Make sure you work each half in opposite directions so that when joined they marry up evenly!" The schooner Bluenose has a very special place in the history of navigation and yachting. Built to fish off the Newfoundland coast, the ship soon turned out to be such a fast sailer that she won all the great classical regattas along the USA's Eastern coast. She was built in Nova Scotia in 1929, and shipwrecked near Haiti in 1946. A true copy - Bluenose II - was launched in 1964.

Most of the fittings are still in factory sealed bags in the factory box; the few fittings bags that were opened have been inventoried complete. Includes plans and instructions. The Liberty Ships were built in vast numbers very quickly in response to the emergency shipping requirements of WWI. German U-Boats put tremendous pressure on Britain and the USA to maintain supply lines. Generally British in design, the Liberty Ship borrowed much from later WWI designs and was adapted to American mass-production techniques. Over 2700 were built, easily making is the most produced ship (of one class) in history. The replacement in 1944 was the Victory Ship, of which Bluejacket also makes a model.
