The Billings HMS Bounty wooden ship model is a realistic recreation of the real life armed merchant vessel launched in 1787.
Among all mutinies recorded through naval history, that of the Bounty is certainly the most notable example of rebellion which involved the entire crew of a warship on the high seas. The commander of the ship and of the expedition was William Bligh. In April 1789 the ship had already completed the first part of her mission and with her precious cargo she was sailing before the wind when suddenly, the crew mutinied. They were instigated and led by Fletcher Christian, the executive officer, who dissented from the captain. Bligh was set adrift in an open boat 30 miles from Tofua with 17 loyal members of the crew.
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, masts and spars, rigging cord in various sizes and printed sails. It includes full-size plan sheets and an instruction manual with English text. This wooden boat kit is recommended for the experienced modeller.
