The 12-Gun Phoenix became part of the Black Sea fleet in 1787. She sailed with a crew of 52, searching for Turkish ships and participating in many battles, including blocking the fortress of Corfu in 1799.
Wooden ship model kit by Master Korabel of Russia uses double plank-on-bulkhead construction in laser cut wood. The best feature of this ship model kit is the pre-shaped hull planking, which guarantees a perfect wooden hull. Other fine components include ready-to-use pear-wood blocks and deadeyes, expertly cast metal gun barrels and anchors, brass wire and photo-etched brass detailing, silk-screened flags and nine spools of standing and running rigging. Sail cloth is included with sewing instructions. The sewn sail set visible in the kit photograph shown here is available at extra charge (part no. MK0401P-2). It was included in the photograph by error by the manufacturer and is not part of this offer. Four large sheets of plans, color photos of the assembly process and excellent English instructions help you finish an impressive wooden model ship.
The Phoenix work in progress photographs are the work and property Sergiy Naf Pobozhy, which were posted on Facebook in June 2018.
