Model Shipways MS2033 1/16 Scale New Bedford Whaleboat (1850-1870)
Plank on Frame Kit
Whaling historian Erik A.R. Ronnberg, Jr. made a thorough study of Delano’s half-sized boats in order to produce this kit of a uniquely American working craft.
You'll follow the original plank-on-frame method of construction in building your Model Shipways kit. Hull planks, oar and paddle blades, tubs, casks and rudder are accurately laser cut basswood. Authentic scale whaling gear gives this kit remarkable detail. Photoetched copper fittings include harpoon, lance and cutting spade heads, knife blades, oarlocks and mast hinge hardware.
New Bedord Whaleboat kit is supported by a superb set (6 sheets) of plans and a 150 page instruction book by Erik A.R. Ronnberg, Jr. The book, To Build a Whaleboat, gives you step-by-step building instructions, design and technical data.
