The Halifax was a New Hampshire-built schooner bought by the Royal Navy in 1768 and transformed at Portsmouth into a typical colonial schooner of the time. These alterations included raising the cabin platform to obtain more storage space below, elevating the bulwarks with openings for the 6 guns and building a new railing with 6 culverins. The outer changes made to the hull as well as to masting and rigging altered deeply the original aspect.
It sailed prevailingly along the American coasts in a rather complex period of history of this country. Double planked hull construction in Lime and Walnut strips. Hull and deck fittings made from Brass, Walnut, Boxwood, and Beech.
Cannons with brass barrels and Walnut carriages. Various sizes of cord for standing and running rigging and brass sail rings.
Beechwood rigging blocks and walnut deadeyes. Cast metal stern and quarter galleries.
Accurate British standards and silk flags. Full sized profile and plan drawings with detail sheets clearly show every aspect of construction. Length: 23-1/2" / Height: 18-1/2" / Scale: 1:54. THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AND HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
