18th Century Pirate Ship
With its square-rigged foremast and fore-and–aft sails on its main mast, the brigantine was fast, easy to maneuver and had twice the cargo space of a sloop. No wonder it became the favorite vessel of pirates. A typical brigantine carried as many as 100 pirates and mounted enough cannon to intimidate any possible target.
Pre-cut wooden parts assure perfect fit and double planking makes for a perfect hull. A comprehensive fittings package contains everything you need for an authentically detailed model. You’ll find boxwood blocks and deadeyes, brass chain, eyebolts and belaying pins, white metal life-boat and 16 brass cannon on gilded metal carriages. Four diameters of rigging, hand-sewn sails, skull and crossbones flags and wooden display base add life-like detail. Plans and photographic instructions take the guesswork out of assembly.
