AMERICAN PRIVATEER 1768

Armed Virginia Sloop - Privateers were privately owned vessels whose owners were commissioned by the government to carry on naval warfare. During the 18th century, many small single masted ships were armed and used for privateering. These Chesapeake-built vessels were fast and easily maneuverable with a graceful sheer and a low freeboard. Exciting new kit from Model Shipways has all the accuracy and detail seasoned modelers crave, yet it's easy enough for a novice to build.

The Armed Virginia Sloop features 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 model ship kit of the Armed Virginia Sloop.
 


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
