Armed Virginia Sloop
This Freshman Course is based on the Model Shipways kit, Armed Virginia Sloop (MS2160). This course consists of 9 chapters and covers the complete construction of the model including masting and rigging.

No modifications are made to the design of the kit. The hull planking consists of two layers. The hull is painted.

With this course, the modeler will learn the two different ways of planking the hull of the model ship, how to build deck furniture, masts and spars, and how to do simple rigging. The course teaches many of the basics of model shipbuidling and is a stepping stone to more complex models.

The kit must be purchased separately and is available from Model Expo.
