At 30" long, Constructo's Cutty Sark
model ship kit is just the right size for
easy building and convenient display.
Traditional plank-on-bulkhead construction uses pre-cut
plywood for frames and keel. The deck is covered with
individual strips of walnut, while the hull features a beautiful
contrast of dark walnut and lighter limewood planking.
Boxwood deadeyes and blocks, numerous beech and bokapi
parts are ready to use. Fittings include burnished metal
ports, white metal anchors, davits and capstan, brass wire,
chain, pin nails and ladder, plus highly detailed photo-etched
brass ornamentation. Three diameters of rigging, cotton sail
material, silk-screened flag and wooden display base
complete the kit. Precisely drawn plans place special
emphasis on rigging, and illustrated instructions are complete
with a parts list.
