Model Shipways MS2262 1/64 Scale US Frigate Confederacy (1778)
Plank on Bulkhead kit
Plank-on-bulkhead construction features laser cut basswood and
walnut components, including port sills, lintels and uprights. We
supply nearly 400 basswood and walnut strips, over 250 boxwood
blocks (for cannon), deadeyes, and 300 eyebolts. Other fittings
include brass strips, tubes, nails and split rings; cast metal ship’s
wheel and anchors; blackened wire and four diameters of rigging
line. Twenty-eight cast Britannia 12-pounder cannon and 4 sixpounders
on wooden carriages replicate Confederacy’s armament.
Figurehead, stern decorations and other ornamental pieces are also
cast metal. Two realistically detailed ship’s boats are plank-onbulkhead
mini-kits with the center bulkheads removed, leaving fully
framed shells lashed to skid beams. Kit includes laser cut display
Designed by master modeler Chuck Passaro, Model Shipways’
Confederacy is a monumental achievement.
Five sheets of plans
leave no detail unrecorded, and the 150-page illustrated step-bystep
instruction manual is the most complete ever done.
