The "sloop", with its strongly sloping keel, was used for shell fishing on the North-West coast of France. Decked only at the bow and stern, it had a wide central zone, fitted with removable planking. The design remained virtually unchanged from the mid-1800's to the 1950's, when fisherman started adding small auxiliary engines.

Corelís kit contains everything necessary for building an authentic replica. Keel and frames are pre-cut plywood and planking is tanganyka. True-to-scale fittings are made of brass, cast metal and wood. Rigging line and canvas sail material are also provided. Clear plans and detailed instructions make building easy.

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
