Product in Depth
HMS Surprise was originally built at Le Havre in 1794 as a 350-ton, 32-gun corvette, but in 1796 it was captured by the British Navy and renamed HMS Surprise. She was re-armed and classified as a sixth-rate frigate. She inspired the Aubrey-Maturin series of novels by Patrick O'Brian and featured in the 2003 film Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. Artesania Latina worked together with the National Maritime Museum of London to create this model and has the exclusive copyright worldwide.
The large scale of this model allows for highly detailed pieces, above and below deck. The hull is assembled by plank-on-frame construction. The kit includes a detailed lower deck with visible cannons and hatches.
Along with the clearly photographed instructions, the assembly guides will explain all the modeling techniques you’ll need to achieve superb results, and include useful hints and tips to help you master the trickier skills involved.
