H.M.S. Surprise Model Ship Kit by Mamoli - Ship Models at Model Expo
by Mamoli • Plank-on-Bulkhead Kit
Captured by the H.M.S. Inconstant in 1796, the French corvette L'Unite was converted into a 28-gun sixth-rate and renamed H.M.S. Surprise. She carried twenty-four 32-pound carronades on her main deck, eight on her quarter deck and forecastle, plus four 6-pound long guns as chasers.
H.M.S. Surprise is the real vessel in Patrick O’Brien’s famous fictional works that tell of Captain Jack Aubrey's adventures, as he sets out on dangerous missions and holds his ground against various enemies. It’s also the star of the recent hit movie, Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World.
Mamoli took great pains to create a faithful replica. The kit features plank-on-bulkhead construction with double planking. Details are abundant and historically correct. Fittings include ready-to-use wooden blocks and deadeyes, Britannia metal parts and life-like rigging. Clear plans and step-by-step instructions take you to a model that would make even Jack Aubrey proud.
