1:67 Will Everard

This 80 ton barque was built for F.T. Everard & Sons in Great Yarmouth in 1925 to 1926. The ship is owned today by P&O Containers Ltd. In 1982, Northern Europe's most beautiful captain, according to the press, took command of the ship, 24-year-old Sue Harrison, who had obtained her Master's Degree in 1979.

Kit includes laser cut wooden hull and wooden strips, fittings set, sails, rigging thread, 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!
