Mantua Albatros (Baltimore Clipper) Wooden Model Ship Kit # Art771

A typical type of American ship called a Baltimore Clipper. An evolution of classic American pilot boat design, Baltimore Cllippers were built for speed and maneuverability. Her elegant lines and large deck area gave her room to carry cannons, but limited her ability to carry much cargo. The result was a ship ideally suited for smuggling high-value goods and cargo that required quick transport. The war of 1812 also proved them to be ideal for blockade running and for privateering, attacking merchant ships with her guns, and using her speed to keep away from enemy warships.

Kit features plank-on-bulkhead construction. With a simple, 2-masted schooner rig, and sharp hull ship, this kit is ideal for the beginner ship modeller. Two types of wood planking are provided for the hull and one for the deck. The mast and trim are made of walnut. All fittings for this kit are made of wood or brass. The kit includes carriage monted cannons. Comes with 2 sheets of plans.
