Independence Ship Model
$ 100.0000
The great joy of building a model ship derives from the challenge. It tests all your skills - and then some. Patience, curiosity, and problem-solving are all called on, all of which leads you to discover and explore the adventurous past of a historically significant vessel - how it was made, why it was made that way, who sailed it and for what purpose.

The USS Independence was a 10 gun two-masted Schooner (at least one authority says that it was originally built as a sloop) built for the fledgling United States Navy in 1775 and it saw extensive service in the Revolutionary War. Commanded (we believe) by the famous captain Thomas Truxton, it was lost in Ocracoke Creek Inlet in North Carolina in 1778.

There are hundreds of absolutely authentic parts: davits, blocks, sheaves, running gear, standing rigging, brass cannon, cannon balls, brass straps, lanterns, cleats, barrels, ladders, capstans, hawsers, a set of seven sails - and much more. The hull is double planked-on-frame. 29-1/2" long, 23-3/4" high and 13" wide, including all booms and the bowsprit. Scale 1:35.
