Museum quality solid hull wooden model kit. Made in USA BRAND NEW! New updated limited release (out-ot-print).
Toward the end of the 18th century, Virginia built boats were used as pilot boats from the Delaware Capes to Hatteras. During the American Revolution and the War of 1812, the U.Government issued privateering commissions to many privately owned vessels of this type. Model Shipways has designed the Katy especially for the novice modeler. The Katy kit features a solid basswood hull, already carved to the correct shape. It needs only a bit of light sanding before you lay the deck and construct the cabin.
Ready-to-use fittings include shaped and drilled wooden blocks and deadeyes. Precision cast Britannia metal parts faithfully replicate pumps, galley stacks, and anchors. Eyebolts, strops, rings and chainplates are brass.
Accurately scaled rigging line is supplied in three sizes. And since real ships had wooden mast hoops, your model will too! Detailed plans, 24-page instruction book are also included.
