Billing Boats

In the early 50's Mr. Ejnar (Ed) Billing, a former RAF pilot during WWII was working billing as an Architect in the town of Esbjerg in Denmark. His wife was running a Hobbyshop called Vestjydsk Hobby and Mr. Billing was proudly displaying his build-up model of a Danish Fishing Boat. At that time there was no actual model boat kits around, from which you could make a boat. One day a Danish magazine saw this beautiful model in the window of the Hobby Shop and were very interested in buying50 “build-ups” of this Fishing Boat for a competition the upcoming summer.Mr. Billing was very keen on the idea, but it was a huge undertaking making 50 models, so he came up with the idea to make the model as a kit, exactly the same way you would build a real ship. This was when the concept “plank-on-frame” was invented by Mr. Billing, which is now used by all model boat manufacturers around the world.

PLEASE NOTE: All of the 600 Series Model Boat Kits (item numbers 600-609) include an easier way of building the hull. The hull is assembled in halves, on a table. This allows for easier assembly and is quite useful in learning plank-on-frame or plank-on-bulkhead construction! Once each half is done you join the two for a completed hull. Make sure you work each half in opposite directions so that when joined they marry up evenly!
