Billings Models Fishing Boat FD10 Yawl Wooden Ship Kit
Brand: Billings Models
Model Number: B701
The Billing Boats 1/50 Fishing Boat FD10 Yawl wooden ship model measures 57cm long, 70cm high and 12cm wide. This wooden boat kit is highly realistic with many fine details.
The fishing yawl was built during the late 1930’s in the Faroe Islands. Actually the boat is not a typical Faroe’s vessel although it was very popular in that area. As a matter of fact it is English. FD 10 is equipped with an English cutter rigging. The English sold this type to the Faroese, Icelanders and Norwegians as well as to fishermen of West Jutland.
This kit features plank on frame construction, laser cut plywood keel and frame components, wooden superstructure and decks, hull and deck fittings in wood, brass and/or plastic, mast and spars, rigging cord in various sizes and printed sails. It includes full-size plan sheets and an instruction manual with English text.

This boat is not a yaul as the mizen mast is not aft of the rudder. She is a typical Brixham fishing ketch or mule. Brixham was famous for inventing these famous boats.We now have a fleet of restored craft. I would buy Pilgrim ,Leader, and Vigilance if Available.
