USN Picket Boat No.1 1864 1:24

Model Shipways USN Picket Boat No.1 1864 1:24

Picket Boat Number One, a steam launch, was built in 1864 to support of the U.S. Navy's blockade of the Confederacy. Outfitted with a spar-torpedo, she could also attack larger enemy vessels. On the dark night of 27-28 October 1864, Lieutenant William B. Cushing and his crew took Picket Boat Number One up river to Plymouth, North Carolina. In one of the Civil War's most daring naval actions, they attacked the Confederate ironclad Albemarle, sinking it with the spar torpedo. Only Lt. Cushing and one other man escaped, and Picket Boat Number One was lost, but the Union forces on the North Carolina sounds were freed of the great threat presented by the continued existence of the Albemarle.

Model Shipways’ historically accurate kit recreates Picket Boat No. 1 in great detail. Plans are taken from research done by the History Channel for its 2005 program, “The Most Daring Mission of the Civil War”.

You’ll build your model much the same way as the real boat was built almost 150 years ago, using many of the same materials. Only, your job will be much easier, thanks to the laser cut basswood parts and ready-made fittings, 5 large sheets of plans and illustrated step-by-step instruction manual.

Laser-cut basswood parts facilitate plank-on-frame interior construction. High quality, flexible basswood strips are supplied for hull planking. Britannia metal fittings, brass and aluminum parts are used for deck furnishings, including a miniature steam engine, pump and 12-pounder Dahlgren Howitzer.
