The Badger (Ex-Pitt) is believed to have been a prize captured during the War of American Independence (1775 - 1783). Although relatively swift and maneuverable, brigs were very cramped and uncomfortable as they tended to be considerably wet in heavy seas. However, two incidents worthy of mention are The capture of an 80 ton vessel. On Thursday 29 April 1778 Badger made Sail and gave Chace, at 4 fired a four pounder shotted and brought to the Chace.

The prize proved to be the 80 ton vessel La Prudente, a sloop from Cape Fran├žois bound to the Mississippi carrying nine Frenchmen; and t. He rescue of the men from on board HMS Glasgow. At 12 oclock there was an explosion on-board HMS Glasgow, and she immediately sunk.

Nelson's swift action ensured that the entire crew of HMS Glasgow were rescued, although several would die later from their burns. On 11 July 1779, Nelson was promoted to post-captain and on Sunday 20 June he transferred out of Badger to the 28-Gun Frigate Hinchinbroke. The HM Brig Badger kit depicts Badger after re-fitting for Royal Navy service during Nelsons time in charge, December 8 1778 - June 19 1779. Also includes precision CNC cut and profiled walnut and ply components, all required blocks, rigging line, high quality birch dowel for the masting, fully detailed actual scale plan sheets, and two comprehensive step by step color instruction manuals for a museum quality build.
