Louise
Thames River Steam Boat

SHIP MODEL KITAt the end of the 19th century pretty little steamboats like the Elidir were a common sight on the River Thames. Between 20 and 40 feet long, these boats had a simple but efficient boiler system, cooled by water from the river itself. A number of them, in perfect condition after 100 years of service, are still in operation on the Thames.

You'll use traditional plank-on-bulkhead techniques to build your Elidir. Most wooden parts are pre-cut, fittings are cast in white metal and brass, and all necessary parts for the steam engine and boiler are supplied.

H.M.S. ENDEAVOUR

The Endeavour was a bark made of English oak with a reinforced structure. It was prepared to accommodate a group of astronomers and scientists accompanying the expedition for the main purpose of observing the transit of Venus across the sun, an event due to happen in June 1769 and which was supposed to be visible from the island of Tahiti.

On August 26, 1768 Lieutenant James Cook set sail from Plymouth, England in the refitted supply ship Endeavour.

One of the most beautiful 17th century English ships, H.M.S. Prince was designed by Phineas Pett, the builder of the Sovereign of the Seas. The Prince was launched at Chatham in 1670 as a first class vessel armed with 100 cannon and carrying a wartime crew of 780 men. She fought her first her first battle in 1672 under the flag of the Duke of York during the third war between England and Holland. Even though the Prince was victorious, she was badly damaged during the conflict. H.M.S. Prince served the Crown until 1692.

Constructo’s imposing new H.M.S. Prince model features plank-on-bulkhead construction using laser cut wooden components. Individual planking strips of African walnut and fine beechwood cover the hull and decks. Ready-to-use wooden fittings include blocks, deadeyes, mast hoops and gratings.
