H.M. Sherbourne - The Kit

The Sherbourne kit is from Caldercraft's Nelson's Navy line, produced and distributed by JoTiKa, Ltd. in the United Kingdom. The scale is 1:64 resulting in an overall length of 500mm, beam of 200mm, and height of 485mm.

The kit components are birch ply for structural parts, walnut ply and sheet for detail parts, maple strip for decking, limewood strips for the first planking, and walnut strips for the second planing. Black and natural hemp are included for the rigging and the kit includes full-sized plans and an instruction manual.

The method of construction is double plank on bulkhead--this will be explained and illustrated in the next post.
