Description

The Greek war of Independence (1821-1827) is mainly known for the naval battle of Navarino. That war was involved numerous actions of the Greek privateers against the Greek and Turkish (Ottoman) ships. These Galliots were very swift, with narrow hull, and shallow draft, which enabled them to anchor unseen inside the narrow gulfs of the Aegean islands, waiting to pounce on the Enemy vessels.

This very detailed and very accurate wooden model ship kit contains pre-cut keel, frames and deck; planking, masts and spars, metal and wooden fittings, wooden inlaid decorations, coth for sails, flags, oars and metal cannons and swivel guns.

Historical Information

One of the best known names in maritime history, the Mayflower is famous for having transported the Pilgrim Fathers from Plymouth, England, to Cape Cod, Massachusetts, in 1620. During the religious oppression in the reign of Elizabeth I of England, two sects formed – the puritans and the separatists. The separatists formed the most consistent contingent on the Mayflower, which under the reign of James I set sail from Plymouth bound for America with 102 men, women and children on the 6th of September, 1620.
