Assembled Admiral's Line H.M.S. Bounty

Assembled Admiral's Line H.M.S. Bounty

A coal-carrying merchant ship operating on the coast of England, The Bounty was purchased by the admiralty and recommissioned in 1787. She was to sail halfway around the world to Tahiti; collect cargo and transport it to the West Indies. A dramatic mutiny was lead by Fletcher Christian against the infamous Captain Bligh. After completion of the commissioned trip, Fletcher and his mutineers forced Bligh into the launch with 18 of his loyal supporters. Fletcher navigated the longboat 3600 miles and settled for the next 25 years on Pitcairn Island.

These ships are 100% scratch built, put together piece by piece, similar to an actual ship. There are no model kits used here. The wood is cut from trees. All ships are Plank on Frame construction (hollow hulls). Ribs on the inside, piece by piece form the hull and deck. If you look closely, you can see the nails used to secure the strips of wood to the internal ribs. Some Admiral's line ships utilize double plank on frame construction. Wood is cut piece by piece and put over the base of the ship's hull to the water line. It's a lot of work and a fantastic look. The lines on the ships are working lines. They can be tightened and loosened. The Admiral's line ship's sails can be furled or unfurled by tracing each working line, though this is not recommended unless you are an avid model builder. Appreciate the rigging, the stitching on the sails, and the fantastic craftsmanship. Each ship comes with a solid wooden stand and a brass nameplate. Every ship comes with her history printed on antiqued paper along with a stand to display beside the ship. The ships are imported from all over the world from master craftsman who specialize in model boat building.
