1:40 Colin Archer - RS1

RS 1 was built in 1893 for the "Norwegian Society for Shipwreck Salvage" at the Colin Archer shipyard in Rekkevig near Larvik, Norway. RS 1 was later named "Colin Archer" after its designer and builder.

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!
