Kit contains all necessary mouldings, printed overlays, CNC cut wood parts, drawings and diagrams for assembly. There are over 200 white metal fittings and it is in their authenticity and feel that the charm of this finished model shows. Awarded a gold medal at the Nuremburg Toy Fair of 1984 it was a first for any British kit manufacturer and a first for any marine model kit from around the world. This kit also fills a corner for the static modeller looking for a cased model that is a little different. Crew member figures are included.

 

 

 

Cruiser kit has been designed with the novice / intermediate builder in mind and has an estimated building time of around three months of evening work. The Cruiser class were brig rigged sloops and were the most numerous class of warships built in the age of sail. One hundred and three built in all from the Cruiser in 1797, to the Zebra in 1815. The Cruiser class played a very active roll in the Napoleonic wars, from escort duty, reconnaissance and enemy convoy and inshore raiding. As originally built Cruiser had eighteen 6 pounder carriage guns but the ordnance was soon to change to sixteen 32 pounder carronades and two 6 pounder carriage guns. Class dimensions were: Length 100’; Breadth 30’6”; Displacement 382 tons with a crew of 121.
