Model Shipways MS2240 1/64 Scale Niagara US Brig (1813)
Plank on Bulkhead kit
Model Shipways' Niagara kit is a faithful representation of the
reconstructed Niagara at the maritime museum in Erie, PA. Model
design is based on research and plans for the 1990 reconstruction,
provided by Melbourne Smith of the International Historical
Watercraft Society in Annapolis MD.
Laser cut basswood parts
facilitate plank-on-bulkhead construction.
Individual basswood strips cover the hull, and we provide six filler
blocks in our Model Shipways Niagara to make the job easier. Trueto-
scale Britannia metal, brass and hardwood fittings assure scale
accuracy. Eighteen cast metal carronades and two long guns
duplicate the armament of the original vessel. Rigging material
include over 600 blocks and deadeyes and four diameters of rigging
Six sheets of detailed plans and 40 page illustrated instruction
manual by Ben Lankford clarify every phase of construction.
