Description

Details

The St. Roch was built at the Burrard Dry Dock in North Vancouver in 1928, intended for sailing in Arctic waters. It was the first ship to sail through the North-west passage from the Pacific to the Atlantic. In the summer of 1944 the St. Roch sailed from the Halifax to Vancouver, thereby becoming the first ship to complete the journey in both directions. Kit includes laser cut wooden hull and wooden strips, fittings set, rigging thread, plan and manual. Scale model of an arctic patrol boat.

All of the 600 Series Model Boat Kits (item numbers 600-609) include an easier way of building the hull. The hull is assembled in halves, on a table. This allows for easier assembly and is quite useful in learning plank-on-frame or plank-on-bulkhead construction! Once each half is done you join the two for a completed hull. Make sure you work each half in opposite directions so that when joined they marry up evenly!

Recommended paints: BB01, BB03, BB07, BB09, BB11, BB14, BB17, BB20, BB36, BB40 thinner/cleaner.
