This 28mm model kit is a replica of a British 1806 Hamilton Gunboat. It has been designed to work best with figures mounted on either 20mm round or 20mm square bases. These small craft are representative of the ones used in amphibious operations during the Napoleonic era off the cost of Spain and America. It was typically armed with an 18lb cannon in the bow and a turreted 18 or 24lb carronade in the stern. They were powered with either sails or banks of oars. This is a beginner level kit and comes with everything to build the hull and mast. It does NOT include the figures or cannon shown in promotional photos. The cannon can be purchased separately at our webstore and the figures are available from FIRELOCK GAMES. The kit comes unassembled and unpainted and takes less than hour to build and paint.
NOTE: This product is a remastered version of our original version and is slightly smaller to better fit with popular game system rules. We have removed the older version from our catalog.
