Plastic kits aren't necessarily inferior to wooden ones; one of these was on display for many years in our store, much to the surprise of many of our visitors who thought it had to be a wooden model of "Old Ironsides". Painted up, complete with its many details this model is something to be proud of. Plastic models do offer some advantages; easier assembly, less finishing, and easier painting. This kit has numerous details such as a completely furnished captain's cabin, detailed lifeboats, anchors and anchor ropes. Can be built with or without sails. Scale 1:96
This kit is considered challenging, but for a young person (13+) who's had some experience...
