Flying Fish by Model Shipways - Plank-on-Bulkhead Kit Donald McKay, one of the greatest designers of his time, built the Flying Fish in 1851 at East Boston Massachusetts. Flying Fish
was registered at the Boston Custom House as a ship of 1,505 tons, with
a hull length of 207 feet,and a beam of 22 feet. She sailed from New
York to San Francisco in 92 days - only three days short of the record
set by her sister ship, the Flying Cloud. Plank-on-bulkhead
construction by Model Shipways features laser cut basswood keel and
21-piece bulkhead set. Stem, sternest, rudder, stern pieces and
planksheer are also laser cut. The hull is planked with individual
basswood strips, and we supply self-adhesive copper coil to sheath it
below the waterline. Masts, yards and spars are high quality beech.
Rigging plan is faithful to the original, with three diameters each of
black standing and white running rigging, plus 200 wooden deadeyes and
225 blocks in various sizes. Eyebolts, backing links and ship's bell are
solid brass. We reproduce virtually every detail of the real clipper
ship, and expertly cast Britannia metal fittings ensure scale accuracy.
You'll find figurehead, anchors, five ship's boats, capstans, binnacle,
mast caps, windows and ladders, chocks, davits and stanchions.
