Constructed in Le Havre in 1794, the French frigate l'Unite was taken with no resistance from the neutral harbor of Bona in the Mediterranean on 20 April 1796 by the British Frigate Inconstant. She was purchased for the Royal Navy, renamed HMS Surprise, and armed with 24 x 32 pounder carronades on the upper deck. This magnificent boat featured in the writings of Patrick O'Brian and in 2003 featured in the film with the actor Russell Crowe, Master and Commander.
The Artesania Latina HMS Surprise wooden model kit is a wonderfully detailed model, suitable for the advanced modeller. The kit features traditional double plank on frame wooden hull construction, with the keel and all main frame parts factory laser-cut for accuracy. Only the highest quality planking mahogany, walnut and fine lime woods are used in this kit. High quality fittings are provided in burnished whitemetal or in real die cast brass, and all fittings are presented in useful clear hard plastic boxes with separate departments with a detachable self-gripping top. The kit also comes with a full set of pre-sewn sails, just requiring rigging at the masts. The deluxe 100 page full colour instruction booklet includes dozens of images showing every stage of the assembly, while the plans come in full colour print with the top and side views of the model at full scale.
When complete this model ship weighs 14kg (31lb) and measures 1340mm (4' 4 3/4") long, 950mm (3' 1 1/2") high and 480mm (1' 7") wide...
