The Billings Slo-Mo-Shun IV wooden ship model is an accurate recreation of the real life speed boat.

When three men met in early 1949 at a Seattle sailboat shop, none of them could have foreseen the peculiar and far-reaching consequences of their joint venture to build a better race boat. Slo-Mo-Shun IV was indeed better than any previous race boat. But she was more than that: Slo-Mo-Shun IV touched the hearts of thousands who cheered her on and changed forever the way generations of Seattleites feel about the first week in August. Slo-Mo-Shun IV transformed the lives of those most closely associated with her, nearly destroying some of them. She evoked thrills and anger and, ultimately, she prompted tears and inspired poetry.

The Billing Boats kit of the Slo-Mo-Shun IV features plank on frame construction, laser cut plywood keel, frame components and decks, hull fittings in wood, brass and/or plastic, propshaft, rudder and propeller. It includes full-size plan sheets and an instruction manual with English text. This wooden boat kit is recommended for experienced modellers.

At a scale of 1/12, when complete this model boat measures 75cm in length, 31cm in width and 21.5cm in height.
