Billings 1:35 B604 HMS Renown Armed Steam Pinnace Wooden Model Ship Kit
1:35 H.M.S Renown
This ship is a 50 foot steam pinnace from around the middle of the 19th century. These boats had a small forecastle, a room for the crew, a boiler room and a cabin. Above the crews' quarters was a conical steel base with a permanent universal ring, on which a 3lb. quick-firing cannon or maxim machine gun could be mounted.
Kit includes laser cut wooden hull and wooden strips, fittings set, plan and manual.
All of the 600 Series Model Boat Kits (item numbers 600-609) include an easier way of building the hull. The hull is assembled in halves, on a table. This allows for easier assembly and is quite useful in learning plank-on-frame or plank-on-bulkhead construction! Once each half is done you join the two for a completed hull. Make sure you work each half in opposite directions so that when joined they marry up evenly!
