The Albatros is one of a series of schooners built with one gun deck in 1840. The slender shape of the hull and the relatively smooth lines of the deck were copied from the French frigates, which frequently sailed into ports on the American coast during the war of independence. The first schooners were built in Baltimore, and quickly established themselves on both coasts of the USA and later in other areas as well.

This kit by OcCre is one of the best Entry Level kits to come out in a long time. Everything is included right down to excellent pre-sewn sails and mounting base. You will find strong plywood for support are such as bulkheads. The hull is double-planked using Ramin and Sapelli with African Walnut trim. Fittings include 8 metal gun carriages and gun barrels, brass belaying pins, 3 diameters of rigging line and much more. Instructions are excellent and are accompanied by step by step color photos and full size plans, making assembly much easier. We cannot say enough about quality of these new kits from OcCre.finest

CAZADOR

18th Century Zebec

Includes Pre-Sewn Sails

Built from the mid 1600s to the mid 1800’s, Xebecs were used as merchantmen and warships. Displacing 250 tons, they usually carried 24 guns and up to 350 sailors. They were the fastest and most agile vessels of the Mediterranean, easily outrunning larger, slower ships. If the wind died, Xebecs relied on a set of 10-20 oars to get out of any situation. But because of their low freeboard and shallow draught, they did not fare well in heavy seas. Many European states, including France, Spain and Britain integrated Xebecs into their navies.

OcCre’s plank-on-bulkhead Cazador kit uses laser cut wooden parts and double planking in flexible lime-wood and rich African walnut. The lifeboat is built strake by strake, just like the real thing. Original armament is replicated with 24 brass cannon on bronzed metal carriages and 12 brass falconets. In addition to brass belaying pins, eyebolts and rings, gudgeons and pintles, you’ll get many photo-etched detail parts. Finely cast white metal ornamentation is well detailed and plentiful. Pre-sewn cloth sails, silk-screened flag and three diameters of rigging complete the model. Two double-sided sheets drawings with two-color rigging plan and pictorial instructions with over 100 photographs assure trouble-free construction.

DOS AMIGOS

American Slaver

Includes Pre-Sewn Sails

The American slaver Dos Amigos was built around 1830. Like other Baltimore clippers, she was small and fast with a long, narrow hull. She measured 83 feet on deck and carried a single 32-pounder carronade. Captured off the coast of Africa by the British brig Black Joke (a former slaver herself) and taken into the Royal Navy, she was renamed Fair Rosamond used in the suppression of the slave trade. She continued to serve the Royal Navy until she was sold off in 1845.

OcCre spares no expense to recreate this historic ship in authentic detail. Wooden parts are laser cut for easy assembly and the hull is double planked. A large array of fittings includes ready-to-use hardwood blocks and deadeyes, brass eyebolts, belaying pins and rings. Other parts, such as anchor, bell, carronade and ammunition are precision cast Brittania metal. Cotton rigging comes in several diameters and a full complement of sails is pre-sewn and ready to mount. Detailed plans and photographically illustrated instructions show every stage of construction.

SAN MARCOS

Includes Pre-Sewn Sails

In 1588, King Philip II of Spain put the Duke of Sidonia in charge of the Spanish Armada. With the goal of invading England, 131 ships and 17,000 men set out for Dunkirk, where they were to join forces with the Duke of Parma and pick up another 16,000 men. One of the most important ships of the fleet was the San Marcos, a Portugese galleon of 790 tons. She carried 33 guns, 292 soldiers and 117 sailors. Heavily damaged during the battle and punished by high winds, San Marcos broke up on the reef between Mutton Island and Lurga just off Ireland’s west coast.

OcCre’s San Marcos plank-on-bulkhead ship model kit uses laser cut wooden parts and double planking in flexible limewood and rich African walnut. The lifeboat is built strake by strake, just like the real thing.

SAN JUAN
Feluca

The felucca is a small wooden boat with a sharply raked mast and a large triangular sail hanging from a long, two-piece yard. They are light and maneuverable, carrying 10 passengers and a crew of two or three. They still sail the Red Sea, the Eastern Mediterranean and the Nile in Egypt. In America, a fleet of feluccas, built by southern Italian immigrants, thronged San Francisco’s docks before the construction of Fisherman’s Wharf in 1884.

OcCre’s San Juan is an accurate scale representation of these boats. Plank-on-bulkhead construction features laser cut wooden parts and double planking in lime-wood and walnut. Fittings include wooden grating, blocks and barrels, brass chain, eyebolts, nails and rudder hinges. Two cast metal life-boats, winch and anchor add life-like detail.

s-dk50800.jpg - 0 BytesBuilt in Havana in 1769, Santisima Trinidad carried 120 guns on three decks. Badly damaged in the battle of Cape St. Vincent in 1799, she was rebuilt with the addition of a fourth deck and the number of cannon increased to 136, making her the largest ship of her time. In 1805, she sailed into the Battle of Trafalgar with a crew of 1,048 men and her immense 4-decked sides showing the barrels of her formidable guns. The British disabled and captured her during the battle. She sank in a storm the following day, ending her 35-year service to the Spanish Navy.

OcCre’s kit is a wonder of naval engineering in miniature. Single plank-on-bulkhead construction uses a variety of exotic woods, all pre-cut and ready for assembly. Walnut and beech planking strips provide a pleasing contrast. Fittings and ornamentation are faithful reproductions of the originals. Turned brass cannon, falconets and gun barrels provide firepower. Burnished metal cannon carriages and gunports, brass chain, laser cut grating strips, blackened metal anchors, expertly cast white metal transom, a sheet of photo-etched ornamentation and gilded metal figurehead add realistic detail. Four diameters of rigging keep hundreds of boxwood blocks and deadeyes fastened. A full set of hand-sewn cotton sails and silk-screened flags complete the kit. This is as close the real thing as you can get - even the lifeboats are built as plank-on-frame wooden models!

More Detailed Information About The Santisima Trinidad
The Spanish ship Santísima Trinidad (officially named Santisima Trinidad y Nuestra Señora del Buen Fin) was a first-rate ship of the line of 120 guns (when first built). Her armament was later increased to as many as 144 guns on four decks. For many years she was the biggest warship in the world.

Design & construction
She was built at Havana, Cuba, to a design by Irish naval architect Matthew Mullan and launched in 1769 as an 120-gun three-decker (some sources say 116 or 112 guns). For many years she was the biggest warship in the world, being considerably larger than her British contemporary Victory and somewhat bigger than the French Bretagne.

In 1795, her forecastle was joined to her quarterdeck to create a fourth deck containing a battery of eight pounder guns, giving her a total of 144 guns. Her armament seems to have been quickly reduced to 130 to 136 guns. Even so, she now carried the largest number of guns of any single ship of her time. As the only ship with four gun decks, she was reputed to be the largest warship in the world, although she had actually been surpassed in sheer size by the new French 120-gun ships such as the Océan and Orient.

The additional weight of guns so high above her waterline made her sail poorly, leading to her nickname, El Poderoso. Santísima Trinidad remains famous as the only four-decker ship of the line ever built; although the British designed one, Duke of Kent, they never built her.

ULISES

R/C TUGBOAT

An ocean-going tug built in the 1960s, Ulises provided aid to many ships disabled on the high seas. Even though she was designed to be a working vessel, a combination of strong steel for the hull and warm wood for the deck and crew areas, made Ulises as beautiful as she was functional.

OcCre’s 1:30 scale replica offers plank-on-bulkhead construction in laser-cut wooden parts. You’ll cover the hull with flexible lime-wood strips and use thin African walnut for deck and pilot house planking. Windows, portholes, winch, lights and other detail parts are cleanly cast Britannia metal. Kit also contains brass nails and eyebolts, rigging line and rubber tires for bumpers. Running hardware with propeller is also included. Detailed parts list and illustrated instructions take you through every step of assembly.
