Many were used as privateers during the War of 1812. In 1974, Baltimore city officials decided to build a replica of a 19th century clipper to serve as good-will ambassador for the city. She was lost in micro-squall (an intense blast of wind building to hurricane velocity within seconds) on May 14, 1986. Designed by naval architect Ben Lankford from original plans, our Model Shipways Pride of Baltimore kit is an accurate representation. Ease of assembly and quality of components are two of the important attributes of the model.
Structural parts, such as keel and bulkheads, are fine basswood, the choice of professional model builders. All wooden parts, from keel to sternpost, are laser cut for a perfect fit.
Many of the Britannia metal castings have been designed specifically for this model, and include windlass life rings, vents, propellers, anchors, wheel, bilge pumps, and swivel guns. 150 wooden blocks and deadeyes, and four sizes of cotton line duplicate the rig plans and 48 page illustrated instruction manual guarantee smooth sailing.
You'll display your finished Pride of Baltimore model on wooden launching ways, also included with the kit. Display base is not included. Length 32" / Height 22-1/2".Scale 3/16 = 1 ft (1:64). Please REQUEST AN INVOICE before you pay.
