I will be releasing a brand new practicum in the fall of 2021, a Sophomore Course based on the MarisStella kit, HMS Ontario. MarisStella is a Croation company that has been making kits since 2008. The have some very interesting kits with some interesting features.
The HMS Speedy kit is a new kit from Vanguard Models. This is a very nice quality kit and will become a new Sophomore Course in my College of Model Shipbuilding. I bought it at Ages of Sail for $399.99.
One particularly unique design of this kit is the method used to build the ship's boat, which the practicum will also cover in detail. The kit comes with a special laser cut base and laser cut bulkheads. The bulkheads get attached to a MDF base, planked, then removed and details added such as inner frames and laser cut parts.
The kit comes with lots of details and deck furniture
