HM Granado 1742 Bomb Vessel

Originally built as a sloop by the great naval architect Thomas Slade, who also designed the H.M.S. Victory, Granado was launched on June 20, 1742. She worked at intelligence gathering and intercepting smugglers and privateers. With the impending Seven Years' War, the Admiralty converted her to a bomb vessel in 1765. As a bomb vessel she performed her duties admirably and ended her career with the close of the Seven Years' War in 1763.

Amati Models Granado is an accurate scale replica, based on original Admiralty plans still in existence. Double-planked kit uses laser-cut birch for keel and bulkheads, high quality walnut for timberheads, rail supports, rudder and other wooden parts. Fittings package consists of walnut belaying pins, blocks and deadeyes, gilded metal canon, brass swivel guns, blackened metal anchor and three diameters of rigging line. Decorations include cast metal stern ornamentation and figurehead, brass strops and pintles, pillars and quarter badges, plus many intricately photo-etched brass detailing. Seven sheets of one-to-one plans, illustrated English instructions and parts list facilitate in building a fine model. Wooden display cradle is also included.

The paint sets for these kits are historically accurate colors that have been specially formulated for model ships. They are high quality acrylic based paints that can be thinned with water, thinner or alcohol. They clean up easily with water, making them ideal for airbrush use. Brushed or sprayed, paints dry flat with good grain structure and a smooth finish. The colors contained in each paint set are based on the colors shown in the picture of the model. 1 oz. bottles
