Wood Niagara Us Brig War Of 1812 Ship Model, by Model Shipways. Historic Scale Wooden Model Ship Kit by Model Shipways Ship Models - Length 36-1/2", Height 24-1/2", Scale 1:64, Intermediate Level, Plank on Bulkhead Wood Hull Construction. Model Shipways' kit is a faithful representation of the reconstructed Niagara at the maritime museum in Erie, PA. Model design is based on research and plans for the 1990 reconstruction, provided by Melbourne Smith of the International Historical Watercraft Society in Annapolis MD. Laser cut basswood parts facilitate plank-on-bulkhead construction.

Individual basswood strips cover the hull, and we provide six filler blocks to make the job easier. True-to-scale Britannia metal, brass and hardwood fittings assure scale accuracy. Eighteen cast metal carronades and two long guns duplicate the armament of the original vessel. Rigging material include over 600 blocks and deadeyes and four diameters of rigging line. Six sheets of detailed plans and 40 page illustrated instruction manual by Ben Lankford clarify every phase of construction.
