BRIEF HISTORY

During the early 19th century, many Baltimore clippers were granted privateering licenses by the US government. Since all commerce was subject to the legalized banditry of privateers, only a fast, well handled ship could be reasonably sure of reaching its destination. Privateers like the Dapper Tom depended on their sailing abilities and fire power to prey on foreign shipping and to escape the British men-of-war patrolling the high seas.

KIT FEATURES

Historically accurate and perfectly scaled
Machine carved basswood hull reduces building time
Eight cast metal cannon replicate the original 9-pounders
True-to-scale wood, brass and Britannia metal fittings
Detailed plans and clear assembly instructions

Previous modeling experience helpful but not necessary. Solid hull construction is much easier than plank-on-bulkhead.

I've been buying from Model Expo for 25+ years. Never had a disappointment with their products. the Dapper Tom is no different. Came out near perfect. Best kits that can be purchased--from anyone.

Good Challenge for Less Experienced
This is a nice kit for those who are just getting started or prefer carved hull models. Easy instructions when followed result in a really nice looking model that will get you comments from friends who see it. Only downside is that the rigging plan is a bit confusing, but using common sense will get you through it. Lots of options to either add detail, or keep it simple. Whatever you choose, it turns out well.
