Master Korabel Brigantine Phoenix 1:72 Scale
A detailed wooden kit of the 2-mast brigantine (modern name for its rigging type is “brig”), reconstructed following archive documents and drawings. An easy to build internal hull design allows the kit to be built even by non-experienced model builders. The design compensates the material bending, so there is no need for the preliminary straigthening of the frames or the keel frame, if they have any bends.
The kit has double planking, with pre-cut planks, both draft and finish.
