R.C.M.P St Roch Model Boat Kit
Billing Boats have a very long tradition of model making, established in 1958 by Mr. Ejnar Billing. The company experienced significant transformation from a small Danish firm to a company producing high quality wooden ship kits worldwide.
The St. Roch was built at the Burrard Dry Dock in North Vancouver in 1928, intended for sailing in Arctic waters. It was the first ship to sail through the North-West Passage from the Pacific to the Atlantic. In the summer of 1944 the St. Roch sailed from Halifax to Vancouver, thereby becoming the first ship to complete the journey in both directions.
All of the 600 Series Model Boat Kits (item numbers 600-609) include an easier way of building the hull. The hull is assembled in halves, on a table. This allows for easier assembly and is quite useful in learning plank-on-frame or plank-on-bulkhead construction! Once each half is done you join the two for a completed hull. Make sure you work each half in opposite directions so that when joined they marry up evenly!
Kit includes laser cut wooden hull and wooden strips, fittings set, rigging thread, plan and manual.
