The Billings Smit Nederland wooden ship model is an accurate recreation of the real life vessel. This model kit features an ABS plastic hull.
The Smit Nederland was built in 1979 at the BV Scheepswerft & Machinefebriek "De Merwede" in Hardinzveld, Holland. With a length of 28.4m, breadth of 8.85m and draught of 3.85m, the vessel is driven by two "Stork Werkspoor" diesel engines, whose 1000 rpm yield 1800hp. Its top speed is 12 knots; the acting radius is 2,250 miles. A special detail of this ship is the propellers, which are equipped with reversible blades in jet streams, and two basin rudders which ensure good manoeuvrability.
The Billing Boats kit of the Smit Nederland features an ABS hull, wooden superstructure and decks, hull and deck fittings in wood, brass and/or plastic, ramin masts, rigging cord in various sizes, propshafts, rudders and brass propellers. 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 1/33, when complete this model boat has a length of 87cm, height of 52cm and width of 27cm.
