Immerse yourself in the world of ship modelling and enjoy a journey back to the age of these marvellous ships with our kit models.
She was a slaver, one of the famous early 19th century Baltimore clippers.
She was low-slung and fast, double-masted, small and agile, painted black to make it easier to hide herself off the African coast after slaving had been abolished. Her hull was modified, with space below decks to bring the slaves from Africa to Cuba for the sugar plantations.
Her last voyage as a slaver was in 1830, sailing out of the port of Havana on 13th July, with a crew of 34 and armed with a single carronade, 16 rifles and 15 pistols. She was captured by the British brig HMS Black Joke, with 567 African captives aboard. She was then put up for auction and purchased by the Commodore of the British Anti-Slavery Squadron, Jonathan Hayes, who converted into an interception ship and named her Fair Rosamond. She patrolled the seas around Cuba until she was withdrawn from service in 1843.
See how, step by step, you can replicate a model down to the finest detail and faithful to the original ship. We invite you to let yourself get carried away and set up spaces for creative leisure in which you can enjoy this marvellous model ship.
