Billings Models Fishing Boat Mary Ann Wooden Boat Kit
Brand: Billings Models
Model Number: B472
The Billing Boats 1/33 Fishing Boat Mary Ann wooden ship model measures 55cm long, 43cm high and 16cm wide. This wooden boat kit is highly realistic with many fine details.
The Mary Ann was the first model produced by Billing Boats in 1958. It has been modified 4 times during the years and changed names 3 times. The ship is a typical 45-ton cutter commonly seen in the harbour at Esbjerg, Denmark; often more than 600 cutters of this type can be seen at a time. The model kit is based on the original ship drawings.
This kit features plank on frame construction, laser cut plywood keel and frame components, wooden superstructure and decks, hull and deck fittings in brass and/or plastic, mast and spars and rigging cord in various sizes. It includes full-size plan sheets and an instruction manual with English text. This kit is suitable for those with a little experience of ship modelling in wood or plastic.

Nice boat but instructions awful
I too enjoyed the hull building, but the rest was not easy. As per last review the instructions were awful, and made huge assumptions. In the end I used the box picture to help rig it. It took quite a few years to build as had family in between. It’s finished now and looks good,

I suppose this took me six months to compete and I was not happy as I got towards the end. Constructing the large hull was interesting and fun to do. However the instructions were generally not enough. For instance, finishing the many lines that appeared draped all over between the masts was impossible as they did not show well on the plans..There were no little beads that could have gone onto the lines. A reminder about putting the plastic loops onto the mast early would have been helpful, it's impossible after various bits of wire and fittings have been fitted.
