Model Shipways 1460 18th Century Armed Longboat

If you have never built a wood ship model before we urge you to start with the 18th Century Armed Longboat. This kit will give you all the skills you will need to move on to larger more complex ship models.
 
Note: there is a paint set available to duplicate the paints and stains used in the prototype armed length in the photos you see here.  It is MS1460MS. The set contains 10 bottles of paints and stains. 

Brief History

The longboat was the largest boat aboard an 18th century ship. A full bow, high sides and fine aft lines made it generally seaworthy in heavy winds and steep waves. The interior was fitted with thwarts to accommodate eight to ten oarsmen.

Longboats were used for taking empty water casks ashore to be filled with fresh water and carrying other supplies back to the ship. They were always fully  provisioned, ready to meet any emergency. Many were equipped with a removable mast and sails to allow for extended voyages. Some were even armed for protection against pirates or an enemy attack.

Features

  • Historically accurate, highly detailed wood and metal model.
  • True plank-on-frame construction.
  • 9 sheets of laser cut basswood, plus over 60 basswood strips, dowels and sheets.
  • 36 cast Brittania metal (lead-free pewter) detail parts capture every iron fitting as well as the cannon and swivel guns.
  • Brass split rings, rods, eyebolts, nails, parrels and Belaying Pins are machined and polished.
  • Thirty-four yards and five diameters of jewelry, no-stretch and easy to knot nylon rigging replicates the original.
  • Twenty-two walnut blocks and deadeyes compliment the rigging lines. All the decorations you see along the bulwarks and transom of the longboat are neither decals nor painted; they are photo-etched brass and are included.
  • The 3 sheets of 34 x 44" plans are true to model size.
  • Wooden base included.
  • The 48 page instruction booklet with over 130 color photos leave nothing to the imagination. It is the most comprehensive, step-by-step instruction manual ever created for a wood ship model. 

Specs

  • Length: 26”
  • Height 17”
  • Scale: 1:24 (1/2”=1 foot)

Design, plans and prototype model by Ken Foran.
