About the USN Picket Boat
Launched in 1864, the USN Picket Boat 1 was instrumental in the US Civil War. Equipped with a spar-torpedo, in October 1964 the USN Picket Boat came across the Ablemarle in North Carolina, going on to sink her. Due to these actions, the boat and her crew have become legendary.
This is a detailed and faithful model kit, allowing you to create a piece of Civil War legend for your very own!
