Plank On Bulkhead Wood Hull Construction


ALBATROS - Built at the Baltimore shipyards in 1840, the Albatros was designed to defend our Atlantic coast. Her smooth, narrow hull and large sail area made her fast and easily maneuverable. Albatros Kit by Constructo uses laser cut wooden parts for traditional plank-on-bulkhead construction. Deck and hull planking, applied one strip at a time, duplicates original building techniques. Fittings include hardwood deadeyes and blocks, cast metal anchor, brass eyebolts and chain, several diameters of rigging line and sailcloth. Six brass cannon on walnut carriages sit on the main deck. Clear plans and clear illustrated instructions facilitate assembly. Wooden display stand and pedestals are 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
