Model Shipways MS2032 Willie L Bennett Chesapeake Bay Skipjack Plank on Frame Kit 1/32
Model Shipways MS2032 1/32 Scale Willie L Bennett Chesapeake Bay Skipjack
Plank on Frame Kit
Model Shipways Willie L. Bennett kit is based on the craft
discovered in 1954.
You'll build your model the way the real Willie L.
Bennett was built, following the plank-on-bulkhead techniques used
on life-sized skip-jacks. To make building easy, we've supplied laser
cut wooden molds, keelson and transom. Basswood is used
throughout. Outfit your craft with cast Britannia metal anchor, ship's
wheel and deck machinery. Deadeyes and blocks are wood, and
there's plenty of brass for eyes, hoops, rings and chain. Sail cloth
and rigging line complete your model.
The 56 page instruction book by Ben Lankford gives you a wealth of
detail with lots of photographs and drawings. Model Shipways
provides three sheets of plans that are so accurate that you could
almost build a real skipjack using them.
