Model Shipways HMS Bounty Launch 1:16 Scale. William Bligh demonstrated an obsession with paltry matters. Too hastily provoked, he antagonized officers and crew with frequent and uncontrolled outbursts.
In a remarkable feat of seamanship, Bligh navigated the dangerously overcrowded boat on a 47-day voyage to the Dutch colony of Timor, equipped only with a sextant and a pocket watch. He recorded the distance as 3,618 nautical miles. While struggling to survive, he kept a log and produced highly accurate charts and surveys of the seas and the terrain, such as the Fijian Islands and the northeast coast of Australia. Launch was typical of boats issued to Royal Navy ships of the period. Historically accurate and highly detailed, Model Expo.Kit is based on original plans from the Nautical Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England. It features true plank-on-frame construction with laser cut wooden components, laser engraved rabbet and bearding lines. Beautiful cherry wood is provided for the frames and deck beams. Hull and quarterdeck planking, floorboards and mold stiffeners are flexible basswood. The fitting package replicates authentic gear, including ten oars, eight lathe turned wooden barrels, wooden chest, cast metal anchor, brass gudgeons and pintles, plus cotton sails and cordage.
Five sheets of plans and illustrated instruction manual assure trouble-free assembly. Length 17-1/4" / Height 14-3/4" / Beam 5-3/8" / Scale 3/4" = 1 (1:16). Prototype model, CAD design, drawings and instruction book by Bob Crane.
