NIB Laughing Whale No. LW128 Bowdoin Wood Ship Model Kit NIB
This is a new-in-box Laughing Whale No. Built in East Boothbay, Maine, to Admiral Donald MacMillan's detailed specifications, Bowdoin has made nearly 30 voyages to the often ice-jammed waters of the Arctic. Still sailing in northern waters under the auspices of the Maine Maritime Academy, the sturdy schooner is a registered National Historic Landmark. The model was developed from blueprints, photos and measurements of the actual vessel. The kit features plank-on-bulkhead construction, with basswood planking and mahogany trim. Each of the two dories is a miniature built-up kit by itself. Many wood parts are laser-cut, and fittings of brass stainless steel and Britannia pewter are supplied, with more than enough planking material and rigging line to complete a fascinating model.
Revised instructions and redrawn plans make construction relatively easy, but the beginning modeler should be aware that planking a hull of this shape is tricky, time-consuming work. Length 22" / Scale 1/4"=1. The item "NIB Laughing Whale No. LW128 Bowdoin Wood Ship Model Kit NIB" is in sale since Friday, December 14, 2018.
