Model Shipways' kit is based on a drawing found by nautical historian Howard I. Chapelle in European archives and reconstructed by John F. The Armed Virginia Sloop from Model Expo has all the accuracy and detail seasoned modelers crave, yet it's easy enough for a novice to build.
Double plank-on-bulkhead construction uses laser cut basswood and walnut parts and planking strips. Britannia metal castings and a host of brass, copper and wooden parts duplicate deck hardware and accessories. Six cannon and eight swivel guns serve as armament.
Beech mast, yards and boom, over 200 yards of rigging line in four diameters, plus a variety of walnut deadeyes and blocks assure scale accuracy. Hardwood stock for launching ways is also included. Seven sheets of meticulously drawn plans and a 40 page step-by-step instruction manual help you create a true museum quality replica of Model Shipways' Armed Virginia Sloop.
