The Flyer is a replica of one of the many schooners built in Baltimore during the 18th and 19th century. They were basically merchant ships and were well-known for their speed. During the American Revolution and later on during the war of 1812 most of these these vessels were converted to small war ships and served as well as coast guards ships. During the Revolution the United States, due to the lack of ships, could not wage a naval war, yet they had to have vessels to procure the munitions of war as their ports were under blockade.
It was necessary to use ships both for trade and privateering. Kit Dimension Length 18" 46cm Height 15 1/3" 39cm Width 6 1/4 16cm.
