This 28mm model kit is a replica of a French Gunboat. It is designed for use with figures mounted on 20mm round or 20mm square bases. These small craft are representative of the ones used in amphibious operations during the Napoleonic era. While this particular craft is modeled based on a French design, similar craft found thier way into many of the navies of the period. It was typically armed with a 12lb cannon on the rails in the stern and has a 12 or 18lb carronade on a pivot mount in the bow. They were powered with either sails or a 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 the promotional pictures. Cannon and Carronades can be purchased separately on our site and the figures are available from FIRELOCK GAMES. The kit comes unassembled and unpainted and takes less than an 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.
