Golden Hind, 1577

by Dusek • Plank-on-Bulkhead Kit

The Golden Hind was an English ship best known for its global circumnavigation between 1577 and 1580, captained by Sir Francis Drake. It was originally known as the Pelican and was renamed in mid-voyage 1577 by Drake as he prepared to enter the Straits of Magellan. He rechristened the ship the Golden Hind in a political gesture, to compliment his patron, Sir Christopher Hatton, whose armorial crest was a golden hind (in heraldry a "hind" is a doe).

Dusek'sGolden Hind kit features laser-cut wooden parts for keel, bulkheads and other wooden parts and beautiful dark walnut strips for planking the hull. All fitting, including wooden blocks and deadeyes, are ready to use. Cast Britannia metal anchors,  a sheet of photo-etched decorative pieces, 18 burnished metal cannon, 7 spools of rigging line, plus cotton sail material and silk-screened flags add life-like detail. Nine sheets of plans plus illustrated instruction manual with parts list help you build a historically accurate model.
